Trondheim, Norway is just west of Hell — literally. So when you think you’re safe in saying it’ll happen on a cold day in Hell, or when Hell freezes over, you really don’t have to wait long, because Hell, Norway is a real place. Is that where I’m from? Nope. But this is the same region that Prince Eirek in the book Ancient Aliens and the Lost Islands is from.

You could walk from Trondheim to Trolla, Norway, which would be the coolest place in the universe, except for one thing. I grew up reading about elves and trolls and wizards, and their fantasy world totally sucked me in. Just the word “troll” elicits memories of magical realms and long-haired Kewpie dolls from the sixties. But then the internet came along, and somehow one of my favorite words got attached to a group of rotten sub-humans. If we could banish all the internet trolls to Trolla, at least they’d be close to Hell where they belong.

Bergen, Norway, is a little closer to home for me as I’m sure you’ve guessed, but I don’t hale from there, either. Bergen begat several big names including violinist Ole Bull, author Gunnar Staalesen, leprosy researcher Gerhard Hansen, and Nobel prize winner Ivar Giaever. Bergen-the-place did not, however, beget me.

Now that you’re up to speed on my hometown and lineage, what about the books I’m peddling that don’t have my name on the cover? Sharon Delarose is there because we did co-author the books Ancient Aliens and the Age of Giants and Ancient Aliens and the Lost Islands, which take you deep into mythology and proof that ancient aliens once lived among us. The Nine Worlds of the Norse gods is in there, with everybody’s favorite god Odin. He doesn’t hold a candle to the ancient gods of Ireland, however, who feature prominently in the book. The Irish gods lived alongside humans until we chased them off, and are likely related to the Nordic aliens who are visiting today.

Sharon has personal knowledge of alien visitors and UFOs. She shared her true story of alien abduction in the book Alien Nightmares: Screen Memories of UFO Alien Abductions and I can vouch for her authenticity. Now that we’ve teamed up, her Alien Nightmares book is featured on my website.
