I was born in 1981, in a small village in the south of The Netherlands.
I started writing books at the age of 15 and my first book was published in 2012. After 6 books in Dutch, I decided to start writing a young adult fantasy series in English: The Cards of Death.
The first book in this series will be published February 2019.
Updates on this series can be found on my Facebook page, and if you're also looking for tips, Q&As with other authors, and inside info on my writing process, please subscribe to my monthly newsletter here.
My bibliography consists of books for children, young adults and adults, and can be placed under fantasy and thrillers.
Cards of Death will be an urban paranormal fantasy series, but don't be surprised if I write a horror series next. ;-)
For those who want to know more
When I was 6 years old, I already wrote my first poem, which basically translates as:
A hug for you and a hug for me
and that’s how life should be
I don't write much poetry these days, since I like books more, but sometimes
a line pops into my head and I have to write it down.
Besides writing I run my own business, which consists of teaching English, Dutch and writing, (re)writing texts and editing books.
I've been playing badminton for over 20 years and met the love of my life
Frans on the court. I love going out for dinner, watching movies, and of course reading, writing and hugging my husband. I am crazy about sushi and Indian curries, and my favourite colour is red.
