My publications

On this page you’ll find all my publications. I won a writing competition by Dutch Woman magazine “Vriendin.”  The subject was “Write a Summer Story”. This story is the base of the book I am writing now. A few years later, I was being interviewed by the same magazine in which I won the competition about my writings. Very excited!

My first book is published in 2009 by a printing on demand publisher Free Musketeers and in 2015 this book was translated into English by America Star Books. It’s about a girl during WW2 who escaped a raid and went into hiding. After the war, she started a search for her best friend and family.

At this moment I am writing my second book. I also write blogs for the wonderful English site about France, The Good Life France to share my love for all things French and I write blogs about Paris for a Dutch website Style From Paris.

Stay tuned for further publications!
