W. Hagerup has worked as a reporter and freelance writer in Norway, writing several published short stories and scripts for short-films. He has lived in England since 1997, and from 2010 worked as a translator and editor. Hagerup studied English language and Literature at The University of Trondheim, Norway, and was a post-graduate student of 18th Century English literature, critical theory and translation there and at King’s College London. Hagerup has had an inside view of life in a Christian sect from the age of fourteen to twenty-nine. His first book was a process of catharsis, and the author hopes it might help others find honesty in their faith, or non-faith. Two new books are underway, in which the author’s humour and keen sense of observation are seen at full blast.
