Last night I was reading the excellent thriller novel Killer Move by Michael Marshall when I came to this passage where one of the main characters arrives at his office and runs into his assistant:
“How’s…” I struggled and failed to come up with the name of her spawn. “Feeling better?”
This was not something I cared about in the least, but that morning a Danish positivity blogger had suggested going out of one’s way to attempt to get inside other people’s lives and minds, however small and unappealing they might appear, as a thought experiment in connection building.
Now this may be conceited of me but I gotta ask… is that me? There aren’t that many Danish positivity bloggers and this is exactly the kind of thing I write about, eg. here, here and here.
I’ve been featured in The Times, The NY Times, Washington Post, BBC and Economic Times of India but this would be the first time I’ve ever been mentioned in a crime novel :o)

You know you’ve arrived when even fictional characters in novels are reading your blog:) Congrats!
It must be so cool to be always in a happy state..
i saw you live once online and you were really uplifting..
@Daisy: Yeah – it doesn’t get much better than that :o)
@jack: Thanks for the praise, that means a lot to me.
I can’t speak for the english speaking countries, but if an Danish positivity blogger is mentioned in the Netherlands, it’s definitely you.
Adoring fans want to know…
I’ll assume you gave into your ego and contacted the author. If not, consider your conscience clear by telling yourself that your adoring fans want to know the answer too, so you’re doing it for them :)
When you find out, be sure to post it! I second @Daisy’s comment. Bravo!
