She later became a librarian and worked as a librarian for many years in Norway, as well as a school librarian in Japan. She stayed with her husband and son in China for two years and Japan for three years, coming back to Norway in 1985. She then switched her career at the age of 46 and studied journalism and took a degree at the Norwegian Journalist Academy.

Alltogether she has written nine books (by June 2016). This book - Sulitjelma var solens øye - is the latest and is a mixture of fiction and "faction".
