Back story

Hi, I’m Michell Léon. A Danish writer who writes books, blogs and newsletters in both Danish and English. My books are written in Danish (my mother tongue), and my blogs and newsletters are in English.

I have been a professional writer for 25 years and have experimented with a multitude of genres and formats. The mastery of those doesn't mean anything, though, if you don't know your voice, and it's difficult finding it through genre and format alone. It's better to find your voice before finding your genre and format.

So in 2020, during the process of writing my first novel, I developed the concept of Five Element Writing to make it easier finding your voice as a creative writer — and be it.

I was born in Copenhagen in 1972 and received a BA in journalism in 2000. Since then, I worked as a freelance journalist, web-editor, ghostwriter and political speechwriter at top government level in Denmark before I jumped into life as a next-big-thing entrepreneur in the online media industry.

After more than a decade in entrepreneurship, however, I realized that I simply function better as a writer, and I decided to return to my original craft and explore my artistic side.
