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 with 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 three in English.

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:

In November 2021 I sent the Dutch manuscript of my third novel Drie Meter Zand (published in English as Two Fathoms Deep) to my publisher. The new book is discussed in the interview with my agent (see video below). Publication is planned in June 2022.

My books are available in English, in digital format on Amazon/Kindle. Available titles: THE BATAVIAN, THE CARGO and TWO FATHOMS DEEP. Paperback versions are being prepared. They will be announced here once available.

Due to the impossibility of giving book presentations, I have recently been interviewed by my agent. Here is the interview, with English subtitles. Larger format on my News page.

And here are the video trailers of two of my books:

My novels DE BATAVIER and HET TRANSPORT are available in Dutch, from booksellers. Publication of DRIE METER ZAND is planned in June 2022.
