He was born on July 6th 1961 in Copenhagen.
1979-90: During the eighties he was connected to the Danish punk scene. A considerable
amount of time was dedicated to work with the musician Jesper Siberg.
Furthermore he played the leading part in the film "Totem" directed by Claus Bohm
in 1985 and gained some additional experience with drama and theatre collaborating
with the Avenue Theatre, a rather conventional theatre, as well as the more avant-gardistic
groups of Dr. Dante and Clinic B. He furthermore participated in a series of performances
at "Charlottenborg", an esteemed museum of modern art, worked together with the
poet Dan Turell, played in a variety of bands, wrote for the Danish Public Service
Radio and collaborated with the Bohemia Nostra in Prague.
1991-99: Michael Valeur continues his literary activities, but also ventures into
the field of MultiMedia. In 1997 the multimedia production "Black out," released
in collaboration with the company "Deadline Media", received the "Aarets Thor"
(The Thor of the year Ð the yearly award of Danish multimedia). Apart from serious
fiction for adults he also writes for a lighter genre of multimedia: children's
titles. His extensive work with multimedia is reflected in the recent debate on
children, adolescents and computer-media featured in the anthology "Ungdom Ð uddannelse
og kultur" (Youth Ð Education and Culture) 1999.
2000-01: Michael Valeur continues his occupation with computer fictions in different
