Danish Edvard Nielsen-Stevns was a student at Askov High School and worked as a high school teacher from 1909-10. He also was a student at the Royal Theatre in 1912-13, and was an actor at Odense Theatre 1914-15, and then toured as an actor. In 1909 he made his début as a writer with a short story in Østsjællands Folkeblad. In 1913 he was married to writer Sara Johanna Nielsen-Stevns (1891-1965).

Both spouses were members of the Danish Nazi party in 1941. His 1940 book Have We Forgotten Golgotha was a spiritual and moral regeneration novel, which he did not directly advocate to Nazism, but it indirectly supported it. In 1945 he and his wife resigned from the Danish Writers Association before they both would have been kicked out. They had very bad credentials in the post-war period and were denounced as infamous. Nielsen-Stevns was also described as a psychopath.
