When I was a kid, growing up in Iowa, I didnít know that just anyone could pick up a pencil and write stories. I thought you had to have permission, maybe, or someone else had to designate you as an official writer. So instead of writing down my own stories, I tried to content myself with copying the dialogue from my favorite comic books and mysteries (I was a big Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew fan). Imagine my exhilaration when I discovered anybody could write (although preferably not copying otherís work!). I haven't stopped writing since!
I live in Vermont now, in a log cabin on a dirt road, with three cats, a Newfoundland and my family. Iíve published short stories, essays and articles. Given that I grew up landlocked, I think itís funny that my first novel takes place on the coast Ė must be the Norwegian in me!
