As far as back as I can remember I’ve been listening to exciting stories told by my mother. Her stories have been everything to me. I grew up reading books from Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Philip K. Dick.

It was my mother who inspired me to start writing—and telling—my own stories. After a handicap that happened to me in 2014—I have a tremor in my right hand, numbness in the fingers and pain in my wrist—I wrote my first book “Hotel of Death: the chosen one.” It was a fun-to-do project and so started my writing career.

Besides writing, I play guitar once a while, in Jimi Hendrix style. I live with my husband and two pet bunnies in Amsterdam.
