Longer bio

Two Dollar Radio will publish my novel Not Dark Yet in November 2015. Here’s an interview about the novel.

My collection of short stories, Beneath the Liquid Skin, was published by firthFORTH Books / Queen’s Ferry Press in 2012.

In 2013, my novel The Empty City, was translated by François Bon and published in French as Une Ville Vide by PublieMonde / PublieNet.

My work has appeared in various literary journals and anthologies, including Smokelong Quarterly, Unstuck, Birkensnake, Litro, and others. Selected published stories here.

In 2012, one of my stories was nominated for the Pushcart prize and another for the British Science Fiction Award.

I’m a member of the Norwegian Author Association (Den Norske Forfatterforening).

I live in Norway and write in English and go to Svalbard in the Arctic as often as I can.

I admit to pining for the fjords when abroad.
