About Audrey

What

I specialize in personal essays, travel writing, technical writing, book reviews, and other works of creative non-fiction.

You'll find me with pen in hand in cafés, parks, museums, and on trains. I'll write anywhere! However, my current studio is the second bedroom of my attic flat in Oslo.

Where

To kindle a kinship with my readers, to answer their questions (all of which are also my own). Writing helps me to organize my thoughts and to make sense of things.

Why

Writers spring from a common soil, enriched by all the beautiful, precise, and rousing writing that has come before and that continues to grow around them.

Learning

About three years ago I was thrown from a horse for the first time.

I couldn't catch my breath. The arena lights were on a timer, and as autumn descended into winter and night began sneaking up sooner and sooner, they had only just flickered on a few minutes before; they were still warming, tinting everything a faded yellow-orange.

I could hear Hollywood's hoof beats drumming away from me and slowing down. I knew I needed to stand up in case he came barreling back my way. I got up slowly, pushing down on my own knees to straighten myself. Sharp pains shot up through my wrists and into my elbows.
