I am an author and my inspiration comes from what I experienced in my life, from my past and present relationships and memories including those I sometimes prefer to suppress. Next to my grandson, I ponder what the Mediterranean sea will bring me to shore. Shelves and stones for sure and for me, maybe an idea of a new story.
During my early twenties I was much involved in the literary circles in the city of Brugge in Belgium, wrote and published a few stories in a literary magazine 'Procesverbaal'. But, my professional life took over and my writings switched to sciences. Now as a retired person, I went back to writing fiction. Together with a local Writers Group, all which are British , in the region of Malaga, Spain. I became passionately involved and writing went far beyond being a hobby. It gives me an opportunity to also show the person I became and the many interests I have.
I feel happy when former colleagues congratulate me on my move from scientific writing to fiction writing. It makes me feel wonderful when I read "I very much appreciate your sharing your new book (Beatrice's Secret) with me. I particularly liked the attractive mix of suspense, history, religion, politics, geography and philosophy. There was literally something for almost all readers. Great job!" (Harvey L. Edmonds).
But above all, I appreciate life and what it brings me together with my attempts to be a humanist, in the real sense of the word. I hope to continue living well, loving deeply all with whom I share my life with.
