Eirik Moe Dahll-Larssøn
Eirik Moe Dahll-Larssøn was born in Bergen, Norway, in 1987. He grew up reading, watching and playing anything he could get his hands on.
As a child he delighted in creating week-long story arcs for his toys, which inevitably ended with everyone performing equally heroic sacrifices, and then magically being brought back to life. There were only so many toys to go around, after all, and only so many 'evil twin'-plotlines to wring out of them.
This eventually spilled over into creating his own lengthy series of comic books, using sketch books he took from school.
It was about dinosaurs.
Before long, the bubbles of dialogue grew too big to accommodate drawings on the same page, and so he cut those silly pictures out entirely and began writing short stories instead.
They, too, were often about dinosaurs.
After this, he fell down the slippery slope words so often provide, getting addicted to writing increasingly larger and more complex plotlines with more and more characters, until finally a novel just sort of fell into his lap.
Eirik is still not sure how it got there.
The novel, begun in 2011 and finished in early 2012, was the convoluted time travel-centric drama called In Time. He billed it as a 'practice-novel', and then promptly hoped to forget it ever existed.
He began his next project immediately after; a fantasy-novel in the vein of Lord of the Rings called Storm. He finished it in late 2013.
It wasn't half-bad.
The following January, Eirik found he was sick of writing things he didn't feel people could read. So he set out to write a novel that might actually be publishable, using a combination of ideas. After a year of writing and six months of editing and proofreading, he published In the Seraphim City, a futuristic crime/thriller. The book quickly garnered a host of excellent reviews.
In December 2016, Eirik released his second novel; a horror/comedy called Rented Souls, which was also well received among critics. Rented Souls is the first book in a series, and Eirik is currently working on the second book in the series, Reaper Town, planned for release in December of this year.
