When I introduce myself, I'm not always sure what comes first: Mother, wife, writer, singer, eurocrat? I suppose it doesn't really matter - and so far, I have avoided a major identity crisis.
I'm originally from Denmark but have lived abroad since 1998 and my current base is Brussels, Belgium.
During my 7 1/2 years of living in Asia, I got the opportunity to reinvent myself through writing.
I launched a blog (Ninemillionbicycles) where I used to describe everyday life in Beijing, and one thing led to another.
If you consider pitching ideas to editors, go for it - and count on my support! I have tried to describe the process of pitching, writing, interviewing and editing here.
