About me & my work:

I'm a former lawyer turned writer, speaker, and involved citizen. Whether exploring the twisted mind of a lone wolf killer or the hubris of the Nobel Peace Prize committee, I shine light on hidden secrets and motivations. Underneath anger there is always great pain. Knowledge of human frailties and the conditioned mind can shed light on everyone’s motivations, and bring us closer to a true understanding of what drives all actions. I strongly believe that each one of us has the power to make a difference. The first step is awareness.

Born and raised in Norway, my curiosity led me to live nearly half of my life abroad. I went to high school in Kansas City, Kansas, and I studied law in Norway, France, and the United States. Before becoming a full-time writer, I worked as a lawyer and in finance in Paris and Geneva, and I'm a member of the New York Bar. My multicultural upbringing has provided me with a flexible worldview and a deep understanding and compassion for differences in both people and cultures.
