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

Yes, he was a pirate and a villain, but he was born in Norway, the son of German parents and lived most of his life in Denmark, so why the Flying Dutchman? I would also like to know the bloodline between him and the Danish King Frederik the third as they seem to have been related.(less)

Compared to the last many years, I didn’t read much in 2017. The main reason for this was that our local library had closed for almost a year due to renovation. Because of this, I had to find my books elsewhere and my main source became the housing association laundry!

I hate chick lit. It is extremely commercial, superficial and artificially “funny”. It’s entertainment, but not what I’d call “good literature” and furthermore, by calling it chick lit, it indicates that women are not able to digest serious literatur ...more

Texts about and of Plato for high school students. I found the introduction to Plato unneccessarily boring and difficult. Hence only two stars.
