First of all, thank you so much for visiting my website. I hope this messages reaches out to you in good health.
23 years ago, I wrote my first book, on a couple of old menucards from my dads restaurant. I was 9 years old and I wanted to become a writer one day. I wrote a story about a boy who was looking for his father and I even illustrated every page. It was not a very good story, but yet, it was a story. And for a 9 year old, it wasn’t that bad 😉
A lot of people told me that it wasn’t easy to get published, but I never gave up. I wrote every day. When I got home from school, I wrote book after book.
I asked a writer for advice and he introduced me to his publisher. They published my first book in the Netherlands when I was 17 years old.
And now, 23 years later, I publish my first thriller in America: Escape Room.
Dreams really do come true.
When I came up with the idea for Escape Room, I never ever thought this would happen.
I’m so grateful that there a people on the other side of the world who can read my story about Mint, Sky, Alissa and Miles, who try to escape a room that isn’t a fun escape room at all…
Publishing in America is like a dream that I never want to wake up from. Thank you so much for joining this journey with me!
