WRITING IS FUN
How to become an author? A question that occupies thousands of peoplesí minds, day after day. How to make the step from obscurity to fame, and from a few words on a sheet of paper to a completed manuscript and a published book? This has kept me busy for several years now, and I can tell you, dear reader, that it is a steep learning curve.
One of the learning points was the fact that no one knew me as an author, I didnít have an authorís profile on the internet, which came up during my search for a publisher. In todayís world it seems to be expected from people to present themselves on the Web. This directly led to me establishing this website, and my blog (see link below).

I will deliver a lecture on seafaring, sailing and writing in the Public Library, Admiraliteitsweg 2D in Medemblik, on November 15 at 2.30pm.
More lectures will be planned in due course.
