Working title: Woes and Wonders
My work in progress is set in multiple locations, spanning from Japan to Denmark. It is set in the times of the Great War and continues through the interim between the two world wars. The two protagonists see the world through different experiences. One goes to China in the first days of the Great war and survives six years as POW in Japan. The other grows up in Copenhagen in a sheltered situation. When they meet and fall in love, they must face the results of dealing with their distinctive ideals as well as their differing family histories.
The book is loosely connected to Snares and Delusions, my debut novel.

Snares and Delusions, my debut novel, is set in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. It takes place mainly in Sweden and Denmark.
With regards to my inspiration and the reason I chose this period: it came naturally, partly because I find the Great War of interest today, partly because the Danish neutrality gave rise to peculiar incidents. Also, my family history raised many questions, which I haven’t found answers to. That gave me a free reign to invent actions and emotions. In other words, my ideas grew out of combined interest and a search for possible answers.
My work in progress covers the Great War seen from other perspectives and works its way through the interim between the two world wars.

New Painting, Yet Untitled

Acrylic on hard board



It’s been a while since I last could find time for painting. That made it all the more enjoyable to muck about with colours and brushes. This painting is so new that I haven’t thought of a title — but it’ll come to me.

William Shakespeare
“Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken”
Shakespeare

Danail Hristov
“Human history is one prolonged and painful limping. We invariably step with one foot on the rock of justice, and with the other, we sink into the mire of deceit and self-delusion.”
Danail Hristov, The End of the Jesus Era

Danail Hristov
“God existed before every religion; He exists in spite of all religions.”
Danail Hristov, The End of the Jesus Era

Danail Hristov
“Every being, created by God and unspoiled by man, is perfect, strictly defined and autonomous, entirely complete and at the same time with a built-in ability to grow and develop. This is the essence of its dignity and holiness. It is not an embodiment of God’s immense Personality, but only one of the realisations of His perfection.”
Danail Hristov, The End of the Jesus Era
