About Me

I'm Norwegian, born and bred, but moved to South Wales, UK, in the early 70s and promptly got married. Six daughters and eight grandchildren later, and having fitted in college and gaining a few degrees in between (in Art & Design), I have finally settled into my own little 'groove' as a writer, and as an editor of an online magazine, The Pages, run by my daughter and myself.

Tea Time Morsels: A Collection of Short Stories (April 2009)
ISBN: 978-1-4092-7352-3

I was interviewed for Don Booker's 'Authors in the Zone' today (1 Sept. 2010). Scary, but good experience:

Why do you write?

I suppose my interest in the human condition might be the answer to that. As for why, I can't remember a time when I wasn't scribbling little stories. My mother called it an over-active imagination.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Myra King, Knut Hamsun, Jostein Gaarder, Paulo Coelho...

Nice to see you here--recognizing your name from a recent Glass Woman Prize submission.

David King – Jun 07, 2010

Marit, thank you for your kind comments on Radio City. Thye are very much appreciated.

Hei Jack! That's the Norwegian Howdy! Next time we 'meet' it will be 'takk for sist'. It's an oddly unnatural thing to say in English (thank you for the last time [we met]), yet the most natural phrase in Norwegian.

Jack Swenson – May 30, 2010

Howdy, Marit. My Norwegian relatives used to say _Takk for sist" or something like that. In English, thanks! I'm glad you liked my story about the Star of David.

David King – May 30, 2010

Thanks for your very kind words about my Kilvarnet story, Marit.

Michelle Elvy – May 26, 2010

Marit! Thanks so much for reading and faving Elephant. I am really pleased that you like it. And I'm looking forward to reading you now too. Will get to your stories later today, when I get a break! Great to meet you here!

Myra King – May 26, 2010

Thanks, Marit, for your kind words about Purple Patch. Genetically Modified dogs are not a good thing!

Marit Meredith – May 25, 2010

Not Ibsen? Well, I could guess at Knut Hamsun - or the more contemporary Jostein Gaarder - but I guess I'd be way off mark!

Thank you for your welcome, Myra and JM Prescott...

Stephen Carter – May 25, 2010

Marit--i've spent some time in Norway, Stavanger and Oslo mostly. Its one of my favorite countries. The people are fantastic.

And you've given one of the greatest writers of all time... i'll give you a hint... It isn't Ibsen.



Myra King – May 24, 2010

You know, Marit, our stories are as only as good as our readers. I'm so pleased you enjoyed Red Fox Rampant. Thanks for the fave and the insightful comments :-)

JM Prescott – May 24, 2010

Marit, Welcome. Your mother called it an over-active imagination. Funny, my mom said it was the only way to get me to do any school work.

Myra King – May 24, 2010

Hi Marit, and welcome. It's a great site. Wonderful writers. Can't wait to read your first installment!
