After writing books in Norwegian for 17-or-so years, I decided to try something different. And so, mid 2019, after the release of the last book in the Norwegian trilogy BIOBRIKKEN, I began writing what was to become the first book in the English LitRPG / LitFPS series OVERTAKEN ONLINE.
Now, I'd written both short stories, novellas and other types of reading material in English before, so I wasn't new to writing in English, but I'd never actually written a full-length novel. Turns out it is a great bunch of fun - and also, being a lover of games ever since I got Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Genesis as an 8 year old, plus having a technical degree in 3D Game Design, writing LitRPG is the perfect genre for me.
Flash forward to 2021, and I've now written the first three books in the OVERTAKEN ONLINE series, plus a companion novella you get for free by joining my newsletter
