Three Sheets to the Wind is my first attempt at writing fiction. My inspiration was George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman series, as well as Arthur Conan Doyle's books about the endearing Brigadier Gerard. I also pay homage to the once-popular, but now obscure, Norwegian author Øvre Richter Frich, as well as Øyvind Myhre. The former is known for his stories about the larger-than-life Dr. Jonas Fjeld, while the latter has written a special favorite of mine: "De siste tider" (Loosely translated as "The end of time".)
It is my hope that some will find my story entertaining.
Someone close to young Martin Nore is captured by Barbary pirates, while the fledgling US Navy tries to do what the great navies have failed to do: end the scourge of the Mediterranean.
Although I'd love to write this one, the subject of the Northman-series appears to be too obscure for this to happen.
A scarred and crippled heiress is left near destitute and must fend for herself.
A murder and an encounter with a successful author sets her on a course to uncover a conspiracy of near-incomprehensible magnitude.
Although I've written/drafted the first 2-3 chapters, it's on the back burner for now.
A fantasy story.
I'm rather enthusiastic about this one, but so far I have spent 99% of my effort on plotting out a 10,000-year history for the setting.
An end of the world setting.
This is the story I'm actually doing any work at all on, as of June 2021. Rather enthusiastic about this one, to be honest.
Writing a few scenes, writing a bit of world timeline, detailing the main characters. You know, the fun stuff!
