Guidebook author and freelance travel writer based in Norway.
I am the author of the Moon Norway guidebook, run a website and podcast dedicated to Norway, and have just launched a new Scandinavia blog. I have lived in the region since 2011 so if you need a writer or spokesperson on Norway or Scandinavia, look no further.
