VJ Books Presents Author Lene Kaaberbol!
Born in Copenhagen in 1960, Lene Kaaberbol published her first book at the age of fifteen. She is a graduate of Aarhus university, and has taught English and Drama to high school students in Copenhagen.
Since the age of fifteen, she has written more than thirty novels and children's books. She has won several national and international awards for her fiction, and her work has been translated into more than 30 languages.
In May 2002, she won the Disney Writer of the Year Award for her work on the Lene Kaaberbol W.I.T.C.H. series of books. The Shamer's Daughter, which was translated from the Danish by the author herself, was shortlisted for the Marsh Award for Children's Literature in Translation.
While fantasy is her preferred genre when writing for children and YA, there is nothing remotely fairytale-like about her crime novels for adults. THE BOY IN THE SUITCASE, written in collaboration with Agnete Friis, was called a "first rate thriller" by Michelle Wiener of Associated Press: "Written in that sparse, uniquely Scandinavian style sure to draw comparisons with a certain blockbuster trilogy (this is better), this story packs plenty of emotional suspense and interpersonal friction without veering into melodrama."
Lene is now a full-time writer. She lives in Copenhagen, Demark.
