Meet The Fifteen Year Old Author

I was mainly inspired to write ‘The Glass Forest’ when my fingers were playing around with my first ever book (something that extended beyond ten pages). It was nothing major, only a piece of creative writing that I had to complete for my English class, but as I sat down to write, my mind fell in love with the characters I had created and it felt unfair to just leave them to die on the page – that turned out being very, very long.

I couldn’t stop writing, and the more I wrote, the more Confidence grew and I finally finished my first – short – novel. It was only 40,000 words but then again, for me it was an achievement.

That is to say that my –short – novel, did not turn out to be that, short. Initially my goal was 45000 words, but that soon became a bit of a problem. After I had hovered over 40000 words, my ideas did not stop and I finally knew that 45000 words was a huge underestimation. The book, after some blood, sweat and lots of laughs finally became published, ending up at around 95000 words (2.1 times bigger).

I have to say that I was sad when I finished the book. Although it seems bizarre, it felt right to write in the world I created; but, my comfort – there are more worlds out there to explore.”

The Glass Forest


After a series of arson attacks, a young man is growing scared and impatient. The attacks have plagued the town ever since his grandfather was alive, even so, the attackers cannot be brought to justice. Something was suspicious. Very soon the unexplored mystery forest next to him creates the impression that something is there. Something is lurking in the dark that no-one can quite explain.

What Edwin finds in that forest will haunt the very flame that kindles the life between the soul. The strangest thing of all, is that those men who through the centuries have wandered into the forest will not want to escape, but weep to see the sight once more with the greatest of passions.

This heart stopping mysterious adventure will make you question what fear really means in-between the intensity of deceit, life, love – and war.


My book is nearly out, and for all those who have been waiting – the wait is finally over. Within days, ‘The Glass Forest’ will appear on Amazon Kindle, Kobo and Smashwords.

Keep watching! I will post again when it is out.
