About the author

Catharina Kjelgaard Vedel-Smith

I believe that any dream can become reality - if you are willing to work for it.

The Dream

I've always dreamed of becoming an author - and I have worked on this dream, since I was 16 years old. But even though it was my dream, I've always known, that unles you were very lucky; got an incredible breakthrough and was published in multiple languages or got ones story made into a movie - it would be very hard to live of being an author. Therefore I have also always had a regular job on the side. But I still hope that I someday will be able to turn my writing into my living.


I've chosen to be a self-publisher - which has been the right solution for me. I am in control of everything from start to finsih - it's awesome, but also tough as hell, for there is only person to get things done and that's me. Luckily I have great support from my husband, family, editors and friends.


My genre is fantasy. It is a genre, I have loved ever since I was a child and I love to come up with a fantasy-story in my mind. Some of them make it as far as the paper. I also like both detective stories and horror - but I have not written anything within these genres.

Free time

I spend some of my free time with roleplaying games (mostly fantasy-settings), read books (when I do not write them myself), read manga and watch anime, watch movies or series, play computergames, create stuff for Books & Dragons to name a few things. And it is also here I often find inspiration for new stories.

Roleplaying games

Roleplaying games has a very special place in my heart. It was here I found my passion for writing. It was through roleplaying games, that inspired me to my first story - which I wrote at the age of 16, put it away, returned to it as an adult and which has now resulted in "Flame of the Fire". It is through roleplaying games, that I found love and even today when I play, I can feel that special bond, there is between me and roleplaying games.
