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

Lise Lyng Falkenberg Sorry, I can't write a two-sentence horror story. It won't let me.

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.
Well, I had surgery for the fourth time in March and was released from hospital 1 day before Denmark lock Read more of this blog post »

Manden som påskud; Programmeret til kærlighed by Dorrit Willumsen
Rate this book
Clear rating
Two short novels with feminist statements. They were probably more interesting when they were written as now they seem a bit old-fashioned. Nevertheless, Dorrit Willumsen is usually worth a read as she is one of the better female authors in Denmark.

Suk hjerte by Dorrit Willumsen
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dorrit Willumsen is one of the few Danish writers whose works I enjoy. "Suk Hjerte" tells the story of several generations of women in Copenhagen from the 1930s to the 1980s. Unfortunately, it falls apart a bit in the end.
