My Occupation Screenwriter
My Bio Rikke was born and lives in Denmark. She got to know India when walking around its roads. She fell in love with the country and the people way back at her first visit in 1966. Today she still goes for strolls in India when staying with her Indian friends. She spends the rest of her time taking film manuscript lessons in London, learning Hindi and, of course, continuing telling stories to her grandchildren as she did to her own children. “Bachri – a Calf’s tale” is her first published story, but the subject – how animals are treated - has always been on her mind. She respects all creatures and in India was taught not to eat animals.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I have three screenplays in mind. Bridget's Well is a true tale that came out of the Irish Civil War and the fight with the Black & Tans. The next is about a hapless homeless man whose fate is about to change - for the worse - McDuff's Mirage. The third work is set in modern Southwest USA and is a coming of age story for a native American boy - Shawnee Bull.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Rufus Goodwin is an amazing storyteller and expert craftsman with words. His imagery and rich romanticism make his reads a treasure to explore. His poignant Soul Street captures the pathos and life of modern urban poverty in a compelling and unforgettable tryst with truth. Meanwhile his North Flame is a seminal work that explodes in the imagination to set fire to generative ambition.
Anne Stockton wrote only one book, but what a gem, Honey Bun is a timeless classic for cat lovers and friends.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Broken Fish, by Peggy King Anderson. Households are supposed to be safe places for children growing up, but too often the tension between life situations and teenage temperament make for a charged and untenable read.
