The Cosy Knave paperback

As Amazon seem to be a bit slow, I’d better keep a link to the paperback edition of “The Cosy Knave” here to make it available for European readers.

Ding Dong Bell, The Kitten in the Well

Cat small

Did you expect me to stick to my plan? No? Ah, then you know me already.

When I began rummaging through all my folders, I found the draft of an old short story – one of the very first short stories I ever wrote in Danish. I had made a rough translation into English and forgotten all about the thing.

So all I had to do was to approach a handful of old and new friends. They gave me a cover photo and proof-read my story for me – all for free! I have the most amazing friends.

Thank you, Ellen Nielsen, Margot Kinberg, Jennifer Hanning and Michael Brookes.

And here it is – a ‘new’ old Knavesborough story, featuring Rhapsody Gershwin at a time when she was eight years old. But I think you will recognize her determination and her strong will. And you will learn much more about her parents and their family life in the old vicarage.

Besides, there are plenty of cats, old women and quirky villagers. Of course.

Gershwin & Green Acres

After a long and quiet period, I am finally getting back in swing.

This summer I should be able to publish “North Sea Cottage”, a novella which takes place in a fishing village by the Danish coast. It has been well received in Denmark, and I am quite pleased with it myself. I think you will hear more of Tora Skammelsen, my new protagonist, later.

But before that, I am going to publish my short story “Green Acres” in a new version. A few of you may remember the story of Rhapsody Gershwin who visits a parishioner in an old people’s home – but no matter where that girl goes, something happens. The new version is a bit longer (and hopefully better) so I can publish it by itself.

Nyt – nyt – nyt

Nej, jeg blogger jo ikke mere, men så alligevel… Og jeg kan da også se, bloggen stadig får besøg af og til.

Tre sommernyheder for danske krimilæsere:

I slutningen af juni udkom Huset ved havet, min første kortroman.

Huset ved havet1

Tora låner et fiskerhus ved Vesterhavet, fordi hun trænger til at komme væk fra det hele et stykke tid. I første omgang ser det ud til, fasters lille hus i den yderste klitrække er det perfekte valg for Tora, men så snubler den nysgerrige forfatter over et skelet i kælderen.

Hver dag i juli kommer der et GRATIS afsnit af satireserien B. Lund. Som I sikkert godt kan gætte, er Lund & Broch heftigt inspireret af en kendt TV-serie – bare endnu længere ude. Sidste afsnit kommer på læseskærmen i dag, så skynd dig at snuppe et eksemplar, før serien bliver redigeret og genudgivet femte september mod betaling.

I morgen, første september, udkommer min næste paperback, Krystalnætter.

krystalnætter ebog

Ligesom Anna Märklins familiekrønike er bogen en seriøs, psykologisk spændingsroman. Mens Anna Märklin foregår i Skive og Huset ved havet i Thy, er jeg denne gang for alvor rykket nord på til Vendsyssel, hvor jeg selv voksede op. Så Krystalnætter er ikke bare en krimi, men også historien om et tæt venskab mellem to drenge i mit barndomsland.

En splinterny satire ser snart dagens lys. “B. Lund” er klar til at erobre verden på sin helt egen, skæve facon -  så snart hendes facebookside har fået 100 likes.

Og prisen – få første udgave helt gratis - er ikke nem at konkurrere med.
