A journey to a foreign world


Martin must become an adult and quickly. The financial future of his family unexpectedly falls to him. What no one could have foreseen is the perils he will have to face, not only to his life but also to his sanity and moral fiber.


Old enemies eye each other across a narrow channel. The armies will soon march. But first, the lines must be drawn—who are the enemies and allies? The English seize territory to deny the French bases and resources, and neutral nations are the first victims of the coming conflict. But in the forgotten corners of the World, blood is also spilled over gold and slaves.


A young man, a boy really, experiences love and the promise of permanent relationships. He meets three very different women and learns to love each for her unique qualities. He must choose between them, but is he the one who gets to make the decision?

T. Hoyem

Author of historical fiction (and hopefully fantasy / sci-fi)

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.

Works in progress

From the many story ideas I've jotted down, these have received some degree of attention.

The Northman 2 - Against Barbary

White slavery in the Barbary states

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 Time for Reason

A supernatural thriller set in England, 1888

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.

To The Green Valley Beyond

Can a ragtag band of heroes withstand the horde outside the walls?

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.

To Dust

The last humans in a ruined world

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!
