Short biography
Lene Kaaberbøl was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and grew up in the small town of Malling, in the Jutland countryside south of Aarhus. She published her first book when she was only 15 years old. It was the first book of what became the "Tina" children's fantasy series, which has never been translated from Danish. She graduated from Aarhus Katedralskole and earned a degree in both English and drama from Aarhus University. In 1988, her first fantasy novel for adults, The Morning Land, appeared. In addition to writing, she has also worked as a high school teacher and a translator. With Agnete Friis, a journalist, she is co-author of the Nina Borg series, beginning with The Boy in the Suitcase (2011), a bestseller.
