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.

Luckily I have been active publishing on the internet for about twenty years, so the problem was easily remedied. These pages are the result.



My new book The Batavian will be published in Dutch as De Batavier, in March 2019. Sample English texts available here.

Formal launch of De Batavier: 23 March 2019 at 2pm in the Public Library, Nieuwstraat 4, Leiden. Applications to HT-C Communicatie en Marketing.

Following that, a lecture and signing session on 13 April at 2pm at De Kler Booksellers, Breestraat 161, Leiden. Applications once again to HT-C Communicatie en Marketing.
