I am a 61 year old American, originally from Oregon, who has lived in Norway for 24 years, married to Katharine, a Norwegian and international school teacher who grew up in USA. I am an English language writer by profession, employed full time by a Norwegian energy company. We live in an old farmhouse on two acres of land in the countryside near Horten, Norway. We have two goats and one cat. The area where we live is rich in Viking history and sites. I have three adult Norwegian/American sons, and Kath has two grown children.
