The joys of writing.
Dear Reader, Have you ever wondered why writers write? Wouldn’t they rather sit back with a good book and enjoy that? Well, most writers I know love that too. Many writers however have this collection of stories in their head that scream to get out, just like a painter has an urge to pick up […]
The cover for Nanowrimo.
Dear Reader, Even though I am still in the middle of writing this year’s NANOWRIMO story (an urban fantasy), I have the pride and pleasure to present the cover for the new book already: It’s designed by the wonderful artist Renée Barratt of “The Cover Counts“, and I’m eager to put the book together with […]
Cover reveal – The Story of the Mimosa
Dear reader, It is with a lot of pride that I present to you the cover of my new book: The e-books will be available on Amazon and Smashwords this weekend, more stores as time passes and distribution channels are addressed. Of course I’ll let you know what happens when it happens!
Hilda the Wicked Witch

Dear reader, In November the madness will strike again, and as in the previous years I plan to participate. I’ve had many ideas about what to write for this, my personal seventh edition. I started with no idea, then one idea, after that there were lots of them and I faced the choice – something […]
Dear Reader (and I am looking at you especially, fellow writer), I used Grammarly to grammar check this post because my inner editor is no match for my typing speed. (Also my real life editor sometimes has a hard time with me, so if there’s anything I can do to make her life easier, then […]
The work of today
Dear reader, I’ve been busy today. The last chapters of Hilda 11 were moved to the e-book file. Then I reformatted a copy of the file for the paperback version of Hilda 11 and moved all that to the print-on-demand service “lulu.com” from where it will be available. I must say that the cover looks […]
