I started writing texts for «real» in 2006, when Dagfinn Koch asked me if I could write lyrics for popmusic. Since then I’ve been writing lyrics for pop songs and classical pieces, libretti, choir texts, musical theatre. I also write poetry, short stories, rants/monologues. I am also working on larger projects that I honestly don’t know how to classify yet.

I have been working mostly with my husband Dagfinn Koch, but also with Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen, the german composer Hartmut Schulz and Swedish composer Mats Edén. I am always interested in working with new composers. Feel free to contact me if you have a project you need words to.
