What inspired you to write your first book?

I started my career in television. As a director in the sports department, I was involved in producing big events like the Olympic games and the Tour de France cycling race. But even though I was very successful, I never felt completely happy. It was like something was missing in my life, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. After six years I decided to quit without knowing what I was going to do next. I knew that I wanted to do something more meaningful and something where I felt more whole. I decided to go to India to meditate, and when I was sitting on the plane going home, my body started to shake, and a cold sensation ran down my spine. In front of me appeared what seemed like a huge movie screen, and I saw glimpses of a story taking place in the clouds, a plane crash, and some of the main characters. It probably took ten to fifteen seconds, then it all disappeared again, and the shivering also went away. At that moment, I knew that this was the story I was going to write and share with the world.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

There are many insights in the story, but the main one is living our lives while we have the chance. Stop postponing, waiting, and making excuses for why you don’t quit your job, leave your boyfriend or put your foot down if other people are overstepping your boundaries. We become busier and busier with superficial things like social media and forget to be present and enjoy the moment. We run fast to achieve goals but are we truly happy? Are we present when talking with our children or colleagues? I find that knowing your values help you to say yes to what is important to you and bring more of that into your life.

Do you see writing as a career?

No, I don’t. I love writing, but I get much inspiration from meeting and talking to other people. I teach wisdom and awareness in business and love the combination of teaching and writing. But I must admit that I sometimes would love to have a bit more time to writing. It is hard for me to say no to speaking engagements because I know I can help raise awareness for the attendees.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

I was never a good writer when I was young. I was insecure and only once did I get an A for an essay. I nearly cried out of happiness. I remember how my classmates looked at me with wonder. They were used to getting A’s. It was the first time I had dared to hand an essay over that no one else but me had seen. I was so proud. When I was in my late twenties a friend came over and told me he had started to write a novel. I thought it sounded great and was drawn to the idea of writing. My first book was a non-fiction book that became a bestseller and was translated into five languages. When I began to write The Life I had never written fiction before but the story unfolded by itself and when I finished the book I found a great editor who helped me shape the writing and story.

What genre do you consider your book(s)?

This is a hard question. Because the book is not just one genre. Part spiritualism, part women's fiction, part mystery one reviewer said on Amazon. I think that is right. It is a gripping story that can be enjoyed by all ages and people who like to be entertained as well as inspired.

Why is this story relevant now?

Fear is spreading around the world a lot faster than trust and love. I believe it's important to begin to focus more on how we can help each other instead of how each one of us can survive and gain more from the material world. For many people, it is hard to keep focus and stay present, and when we are not present, we lose the ability to have deep and meaningful conversations.

Many people live in fear, have low self-esteem, are disconnected from themself, and feel inner pain. We have to raise awareness so we can begin to live from trust instead. It is easy to talk about it but much harder to do it and in the books, there are also tools to work with your personal development.

What is your favorite quote?

People don’t change anything until the pain of what is becomes greater than the fear of the change they are facing.
