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.
