The blog is mainly about my first book "When the Crowd Cries"
and hopefully there are many books under the Christmas tree this year 🙂 I cannot remember a year in my life that has been as hectic and gone as quick as this year. Publishing «When the Crowd Cries» has made a huge difference in my life and I would be a liar if I said
In many ways I am a perfectionist and I change things until I get satisfied. I really did not like the look of cheapchip.no so I found out that it was time for a change. Again … So much is happening around me right now and I want that my websites should look the best
Of course, one can discuss what makes a woman beautiful, but being yourself is much more important than expensive clothes and make-up. A woman wearing no jewellery look more sophisticated than the ones overdoing it. When I photographed a new model I always asked her to wear her own favourite clothes. Feeling well is a
