Thanks so much for dropping by. Although my website’s theme is Platform for Writerly Ideas and Confessions, I don’t feel I’m very good with private information about myself or my life. I love creating characters and they obviously have something in common with me – or they wouldn’t be there – but autobiography is not for me. I am regularly dumbfounded at how well other authors string together their fascinating bios, though.
Let me just stick to giving you a couple of -random- facts.
I was born in Paris (Fr.) in 1956 as a second child to a Dutch father and an English mother but I have lived in The Netherlands almost all my life. However, I have strong ties with my own triangle: France, UK and Holland.
Long ago I studied Dutch literature and Mass Communication at the University of Amsterdam and I also obtained a B.A. in English Literature and Language and a B.A. in Translation from Rotterdam University. I work at the International Office of HZ University of Applied Sciences in Vlissingen.
My free-time is taken up by writing fiction and teaching Yoga. My three children have flown the nest.
From the age of 8, I’ve written poetry and short stories but it has taken me almost 50 years to become a published author. My debut novel – a literary romance When The Ink Dries was published in 2012. My second novel, a psychological thriller The Collaborator’s Ghost will be out hopefully in December 2013. Number 3 – my current project – is a historical family saga situated in south Sweden called Daughter of The Alvar. I’m under contract with Taylor Street Books in San Francisco.
So far When The Ink Dries is only available in the countries where Amazon is active. Apparently, Amazon is soon coming to The Netherlands so then my book(s) will be available in the country where I live.
I hope you enjoy my website and the regular new (guest) posts that are published on my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment in the comment section.
See you around,
