Vikings Galore!

Come Friday, the Viking and I are headed to Norway!!!!!

Yay! This is a dream trip for me. I have long been obsessed with everything Viking. First of all, I married a Viking,  and, second, I write Viking romances. On this trip we’re visiting almost all of the Scandinavian countries, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark. We’re also hitting St Petersburg, Russia, Estonia, and Latvia.

But, for me, the highlights of our sojourn will be the visits to Birka (an ancient Viking trading settlement) and Hedeby, once the capital of the Viking world. So, I’m getting myself into Viking mode and what better way to begin than with a pictorial representation of the nine Viking Worlds.

Viking Worlds


Asgard – home of the Æsir gods

Vanaheim – home of the Vanir Gods

Alfheim – home of the Light Elves

Nidavellir – home of the Dwarfs

Midgard – home of the Humans

Jotunheim – home of the Jötnar  or Giants

Svartalfheim – home of the Black Elves

Hel – home of the Dead

Muspelheim – home of the fire Giants and Demons


Connecting all of these worlds is the mythical tree Yggdrasil, the tree of life. Here’s a wonderful depiction of Yggdrasil and the nine worlds:


Right now, I’m furiously writing what I shouldn’t be considering I have another book due—the first tale in my new Viking Invasion series—Wùlfe.

Shhhhh! No tattling on me.

Hope you have a marvelous Monday!
