Ted Polet


For several years now I have been writing adventure novels and thrillers, in which seafaring and sailing are an important theme. I have had a love-hate relationship to the sea for much of my life, and after all, the sea is one of our last frontiers, where you cannot predict what will happen next. My social involvement is at least as important; this being apparent in my books won't come as a surprise. Two of my books have now been published in Dutch and a third is well on the way. Of all my manuscripts an English translation is available, aiming at future publication in that language.

I use this website, my author's blog and my Youtube movie channel as a publicity medium for my authorship, social engagement and other activities.



Important news:

My novel THE BATAVIAN was published, in English, in electronic book format on Amazon (Kindle) .

THE CARGO will follow soon.

Due to the impossibility of giving book presentations, here is the video trailer:


Due to Covid-19 restrictions, no lectures could be given in recent months. As soon as restrictions will be lifted, new lectures will be planned.

My novels DE BATAVIER and HET TRANSPORT are available in Dutch, from booksellers.
