||Look Wot I Dun, biography,
Omnibus Press, 2013
The authorised Don Powell biography.
In "Look Wot I Dun" Lise Lyng Falkenberg paints an entertaining, but sincere and honest portrait of an ordinary man with an extraordinary job who struggles with both fame and amnesia and the consequences thereof: self doubt, alcoholism, loneliness and financial woes. Using diary quotes, interviews and her own research the author has created a unique documentation of one man's struggle to find himself behind his image as Slade's powerhouse drummer. Furthermore Lise Lyng Falkenberg uses her interviews with Don Powell, his family, friends and colleagues (e.g. Gene Simmons (Kiss), Francis Rossi (Status Quo), Andy Scott (Sweet) and Suzi Quatro) to make a new and different type of biography with memory as a major theme. After all: who remembers what and do different people remember differently?

Twisted Tales of Thanatos, short story collection, Underskoven, 2003
Twisted Tales of Thanatos is Lise Lyng Falkenberg's first work of fiction in English. The short stories have previously been published in Danish where they have been selected from the author's two short story collections and different literature magazines. The author herself has translated them into English for this collection. The short stories tell about second sighted rock musicians, disillusioned mistresses, fetishistic artists and dead childhood friends in a cycle of destinies, anecdotes and snapshots from real life. The magic realism that permeates the seven short stories gives a new and wondrous idea of death in an otherwise mundane, modern society.

Celebrating her forty years in fiction, Lise Lyng Falkenberg has

her bestselling short story “The Blackbird” over her early novella
“Mooncalf” and Haiku poetry for

representative collection of the author’s writings characterised by her
use of magic realism, horror and stream-of-consciousness. So, sit back and
enjoy as you are in for a wild ride.
British drummer Don Powell,
who rose to fame with the seventies’ British glam rock band Slade, wrote
the original manuscript for “The Adventures of Bibble Brick” in the
sixties, but it wasn’t published until he teamed up with Lise Lyng
Falkenberg. Together they have rewritten the story to make it more up to
date without it losing its original charm, humour, and quirkiness.
The book tells the story of the pebble Bibble who leaves the beach to see for himself how it is to live on shore. Here he ends up in the entourage of a prize fighter, where he makes new friends and fights against the bad guys. The story is still wonderfully inappropriate for younger children with its boxing theme, drunken night club scenes and a very sexy spider.
“The Adventures of Bibble Brick” is excellently illustrated by Mark Millicent. It is available at Amazon in e-book format $ 3.43 / £2.99 and in hardcover format $ 11.33 / £8.50
