I'm a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and hold a second Ph.D. degree in Cultural Studies as well as a B.A. in Semiotics.

When I was nineteen, I had a manuscript accepted by one of the leading publishing houses in my native country Denmark and so far, close to twenty of my books, mostly novels and biographies, have been published in both Danish and English along with hundreds of short stories, poems, essays, articles and reviews.

I have worked for Odense University Library and University of Southern Denmark as a researcher and parallel to my academic career, I took on jobs as a model, graphic artist, musician, carny, journalist, scriptwriter, photographer and director of documentaries and rock videos.

In 2005 I decided to put my Danish writing

Books I read in 2019

First of all I want to say sorry for being quiet all year. It wasn’t my intention, but I’ve had a tough time healthwise. I’ve had extreme difficulties in walking since the summer of 2019 and the painkillers I had to take made me drowsy 24/7. Eventually I ended up sleeping up to 19 hours a day.

King Kong Theory by Virginie Despentes

One of the best feminist books I have ever read. Depentes writes what we other just think when we move around in a male dominated world. I would have liked to read her take on abolishing this male domination, but that is not something she talks about ...more

Troublemaker by John  Cho

Cho's debut as a writer is with a middle-grade novel. To me, the story is first and foremost about race and age-gaps taking its outset in the 1992 riots (which - thankfully - I just missed as I left LA in 1991!) The story is well told and suspenseful ...more

One of the worst books I have ever read. This shows why I so rarely read Danish literature. I have no idea why anyone should read this book. Nothing really happens except children torturing animals and each other again and again. It's nauseating. The ...more
