In the Meantime, anything can happen! 

The Meantime Stories is a funny short read series that draws inspiration from Terry Pratchett, Monty Python, and Douglas Adams, drenched in Nordic Noir (human folly, abrupt and plentiful deaths, snappy dialogue, quirky deep thoughts, and absurd outcomes). It’s glittering darkness, and clouded light.


Each story is a stand-alone, ready to be enjoyed when you yearn for 30 minutes of wacky, brainy, and laugh-out-loud entertainment. Longing for surprises, unexpected twists, and silliness with an edge? Look no further, because in the Meantime, anything can happen!

Five stories are now available on Amazon:


The President's world is about to turn upside down in this acclaimed and hilarious short story about power, politics and an obstinate toilet.


During a summit, the President faces his biggest challenge yet: A clogged toilet. What’s the man to do? Leave the bathroom and say nothing on the matter? Or, take matter into his own hands? 


In this brutally humorous medieval tale, Draghan – a feared field general - is having an existential crisis before the upcoming battle. His unblemished record of staunch, senseless violence is threatened by a fear of blood, gods, and some sweets. 


In this wacky and hilarious sci-fi spoof, Captain Lisa Henderson and her 3,500 passengers on the commuter spaceship Agatha X are stuck inside a wormhole. Their safe return home may depend upon a cinnamon roll.



In this hilarious and shocking love story, Bjorn Gustafson – meek, Minnesotan grain farmer – is confronted with the pains of his neglected love life. He knows now, that time has come to call up his one true love: Astrid. Shame then, how this long overdue epiphany hits him just as half a ton of moose is about to penetrate the windshield of his old Sedan. Despite these unfortunate circumstances, Bjorn is determined to battle fate and declare his love. But is there time?


In this satirical tour-de-farce, Audrey Riddlerfinch finds out how hard and lonely it is to be the only girl in a man's world at the Dictator's College. Not failing music, literature 1, or PT is challenging enough. What is worse; her fellow students, the principal, and the school administration won’t stop at anything to break her spirits and force her out. But Audrey is determined to graduate, at any cost!

And don’t you worry – new and equally funny Meantime Stories will follow!
