Hi! I'm Edee. I was born and raised amidst the tranquil landscapes of rural Georgia, USA. In 2010, my journey led me across continents to the capital city of Oslo, Norway, where I now call home.
My career has taken a few zigzags since transplanting to Oslo. Starting from waitressing gigs in my early days, I later ventured into freelancing, seeking to expand my horizons. Today, I've found my stride in the dynamic realm of communications, where I thrive on building connections and crafting compelling narratives. Currently, I am laboring over a novel - scribbling away each day during my leisurely Scandiavian maternity leave.
Outside of work, I'm a devoted enthusiast of the arts. Whether I'm engrossed in the pages of a new book, penning my own stories, or reveling in the intricate melodies of music, creativity feeds my soul. Vintage fashion and classic cinema hold a special place in my heart, evoking a deep nostalgia for days gone by. Nature beckons to me, too. Hiking trails and the promise of adventure draw me to the great outdoors, while the kitchen serves as my canvas for culinary expression. From savory creations to mouthwatering baked goods, I relish the joys of cooking. My wanderlust has carried me to distant corners of the globe, with each destination leaving an indelible mark on my free spirit. These days, I reside in the charming neighborhood of St. Hanshaugen, Oslo, with my husband and our one-year-old son. Here, amidst the brown cheese, cross country skiing, and concept of "koselig," I find myself at the crossroads of two worlds. I cherish the richness of my Southern roots while embracing my established life in the land of the Vikings.
You may be wondering, why "E.S. Collins?" A long time ago, I thought that using my grandmother's initials and last name would make for a good pen name. Simple as that.
