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.

    It’s so good to see a post from you again! I always enjoy your writing and look forward to both of these.

  6. Oh, there is nothing better than faithful blog readers!
    Sometimes I worry that the whole world will have forgotten me whenever I get round to publishing something again, but perhaps it won’t be quite as bad as that 😀

  7. I wondered how your writing was progressing. Great to hear that there are more books in the pipeline. The book on the danish coast sounds intriguing. I just might be at “the North Sea” myself this summer…..
