The Danish novelist and dramatist Hanne Marie Svendsen (1933-) is best known for the intriguing blend of realism and fantasy in her novels and short stories, notably the award-winning Guldkuglen (1985, published in English as The Gold Ball in 1989). She began her professional career at Danish national television, where she became deputy head of the theatre and literature department. She also taught at the University of Copenhagen, and published several critical books before devoting herself to writing fiction full time. Inspired by her many journeys abroad as well as by storytellers from her native Skagen, the northernmost town in Denmark, she has herself become a consummate storyteller.
