About the Author, Marianne Slot
Marianne Slot was a teacher for 30 years and is now a full-time writer. Ever since she was a little girl she has been a writer of poems, stories, and fairy tales! She was so addicted to writing that she spent most of her breaks in primary school writing.
For yearsshe hid her writings in a drawer, however, after six years of living and teaching in Greenland, she felt compelled to write about the many good, sad, and exciting experiences from that beautiful country. It resulted in eight books about an Inuit boy and his life in a small Greenlandic settlement beneath the Northern Lights. Many children in Danish schools have learned about Greenland through these books. (Published in 1994-95 by Gyldendal, the largest publishing company in Denmark.)
This gave her the courage to continue publishing her stories, and a few years later the five books about the brave Viking, Hauge, were published. (The series: "Viking Blood"
Since then she has published several books in Danish, the series ‘Prince Salino’, which is a fantasy story, and is currently involved in an international film script/children's book project.
She lives with her husband in an old thatched farmhouse in Reersoe, Denmark, a small inlet in an area rich with relics, fortresses, and burial mounds.
