About Audrey


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.


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.


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.


For the first five years in Oslo, my husband and I lived in an attic flat in Frogner. My office desk was my sanctuary. Visit that writing space here. Since then, we've moved east in town and swapped out the "office" for a "nursery."

Now you can find me--pen in hand--in cafés, parks, museums, and on trains. I'll write anywhere! But mostly, you'll see me huddled up at a desk in the main library at the University of Oslo's Blindern campus as I pursue my MA in British and American Literature.
