Maria Andersen

Maria Andersen grew up within a poor, too-large family and went on to become a catering officer at Roskilde Hospital from 1906 until her death.

Maria Andersen never worked with any method: scribbling away, she did not bother to look back, let alone revise her work. She welcomed her fellow writer and time-honoured friend, Gudrun Eriksen, to the job of editor. The third volume was barely finished at the time of her death. This presented no difficulty to Gudrun Eriksen, however — she knew her friend and her story so well that she felt competent to round it off.
