About my Writing

After my youngest son, Zaan, died on the 8th of April 2008, I started writing to deal with my feelings. This has expanded into writing in general.

That book is coming… definitely someday…

For fictional writing I’ve done, please visit The Story Mint. Free to read I promise! I’ve written quite a few chapters in the serials as well as starters. Enjoy the reading…
