If you are interested in horse care, check these “cures” for horses. I have been translating Sven Samuelsson’s horse care book, originally written in Sweden 1775. I got the book from my grandfather who had horses. When translating these I sure hoped he never used these methods… Poor horses! use of mercury and feces, and never ending blood-letting…

My grandfather’s book (in Finnish) is from 1863 and it was missing some pages. Luckily I found the book (in Swedish) from an old book store in Sweden. I’ve been having quite the job when trying to find old Finnish words that are no longer in use, and now I have to translate old Swedish. This should be interesting…

Click here and you will be taken to the page on my website where you can begin reading the horse care tips. This is still a work in progress, so only 30 “cures” are translated so far. More comes when I have the time to translate them.

Read my NaNoWriMo novel as I write it

So I decided to take the plunge. I’ve never taken part on NaNoWriMo, but now I thought I’d try.

And not only try, but also share the story as I write it. If you wish to read it fresh from the “press”, typos and all, check out:

So far I have planned it will involve ancient Egypt (Is someone surprised?), magic, sci-fi, a little dystopian sprinkle there too… An impossible mix, but I love challenges LOL 😀

And the work name of the book is Space Witches. 50.000 word target in a month.

Yep. I must be mad. Publishing Nephilim Quest 2 at the same time. And writing and illustrating the sequel to Mummific’s book (How I Became a Mummy). But I have to live up to my reputation. Which is something along the lines of “the odd Egyptologist geek writer”.
