Blog Tag (2)

The tour continues, this time with a hand-over to Henriette Gyland, who I was pleased to profile in Writing Magazine last year, after her debut novel 'Up Close' came out via Choc Lit. (And what a great cover image; chilling or what?)

I'm delighted to see that Henriette hasn't allowed the grass to grow beneath her feet, and has produced two more novels since then - 'Elephant Girl' and 'The Highwayman's Daughter' - which intriguing titles should at least compel you to go and buy them - now! (Anyway, anyone this productive deserves supporting, in my view. Others can rest on their laurels if they wish).

Here's her bio, so do go and give her a read:

Henriette Gyland grew up in Northern Denmark but moved to England after she graduated from the University of Copenhagen. Before she started writing, she worked in the Danish civil service, for a travel agent, a consultancy company, in banking, hospital administration, and for a county court before setting herself up as a freelance translator and linguist. Henriette recently began to pursue her writing in earnest winning the New Talent Award in 2011 from the Festival of Romance and a Commended from the Yeovil Literary Prize.

Kør, Henriette! (That means 'go, Henriette', in Danish. I think. I hope. If not, you know what I mean).



  1. Thanks, Adrian. "Kør" does mean "go" in Danish, as in "drive" (car, bus, bicycle, the word is used for all of them. Funny old language, Danish :-) ).

  2. Phew- glad of that. Danger can reside in the smallest word...
