about me

I have published 45 Computer related books in Dutch (the last one was about a Smart TV - a TV which allows you to go online and install apps).

Also, I'm writing Young Adult novels (one in English - the one below, and one in Dutch which is an entirely different type of story), work on my own (Dutch) computer website and run my own (Dutch) newsletter. In a local prestigious Strip Award (Focus Knack) I've written the script, which ended in the Top 10 of a few hundred entries. You see: I am writing and I will keep on writing as if my life depended on it.

When you read my story, I will always return the favor (though not always the backing). If I haven't done that in let's say a week, please make a point of telling me about it.

Instead of suggesting a swap, just read my story if you want me to read yours. I never suggest swaps myself; I simply give you my view on your story. After all, there is a lot to learn from the way others solve a particular problem, even if you decide not to read mine.

Children of Little Might

Peter The Dragon

What happens when a boy with autism finds a manuscript that promises to grant any wish he makes when he translates it?


Monty Hill has autism; a diagnosis he finds hard to bear. When he discovers a manuscript that promises him to grant any wish he has, he knows what his first wish will be. It’s the start of an adventure in which he has to save a Kingdom in another world from his own school’s disciplinary prefect. CHILDREN OF LITTLE MIGHT’s climax involves Monty’s bitter choice: who will he allow to live? Storm, his best (and only) friend who's sitting in a wheelchair? Or Princess Aislinn, the girl that could make every one of his wishes come true? To make things worse, he can't wish them both into safety unless he figures out something very personal about a man he has barely met...

[Out of Darkness] Can't help but see that you probably use a lot of the South African 'boers' language. Or Dutch. In the last sentence of the prologue you capture the essence of most religions well. I just don't understand why there is a prologue. A prologue generally explains something the au... view book

[Like Corns on my Toes] You have a powerful way of making that rain visible. The start is wonderfully vivid and draws me right in. You introduce the MC's name very quickly, which is great. But then she does something I can't see her do when she's so exhausted. When the pain becomes a dulled and s... view book

[Firestorm in Eden] Honestly? You tell. You don't show. Someone who is confused can't be so clear minded as our MC obviously is. He sees a wound (and though he doesn't feel the pain, it seems a serious one) and yet he doesn't try to take care of that immediately? When he finally does, he is looki... view book

[Blood on the Banana Leaf] Very good start. You show us the world with a few waves of your pen: very well done. I feel the setting, which is great. In paragraph 3 you say the door is always open for the children, however, in the next line she has only one child? Ah - a drama in the making. ... view book

[Half pennies and blue vinyl] Very good start: you pull us right in the middle of the action. I want to read on to find out what brought them there. After a while, however, the reason becomes fuzzy. Maybe I didn't read it properly, but it's unclear to me how the police found out about the forgeri... view book
