Work and live in Oslo(b. 1985)

My first book, the short prose collection I lyngen (2013) was shortlisted for the Tarjei Vesaas debutant prize. In 2016, my first novel Dammyr (Marsh Pond), was shortlisted for the Youth Critics’ Prize. I was awarded with the Norwegian Booksellers’ primary writer’s scholarship in 2017, by the literary committee of the Norwegian Authors’ Union. My Men has become my breakthrough novel, published to rave reviews in Norway in 2021, as well as a huge international success with more foreign sales.
