Mette has recently finished her first novel “In Too Deep.” Writing has been a passion for her since she learned to master the pencil, and her teachers from primary school and onwards can verify that the problem for Mette was never lack of imagination but that her notebooks ran out of pages. She was born and raised in a suburb to Aalborg in rural Denmark, graduated with a BA in Social Works in 2011, and worked as a social worker, where she had the pleasure of helping children and their families cope with disabilities like autism, ADHD and early brain damage.
She and her husband went to Toronto, Canada in 2013 where Mette dived into her passion of writing. In fall 2015, she attended and completed her first writer’s course at the University of Toronto. During the summer 2016, she started the Humber School for Writers Graduate programme, and in June 2017, she graduated. And During the summer 2018 she and her family returned to Denmark, and in 2020 she finished a master degree in Social Work and is currently back to working with families.
