Welcome to my website. Here you will find most information on the two books that I have written:

WITTE INKT, a Dutch language legal business thriller, published by Sdu Uitgevers in 2013.

WHITE INK, the professionally translated English language edition of WITTE INKT, which I crowdfunded and published myself in cooperation with Sdu Uitgevers in 2015.

ONE BILLION AND ONE DIRHAM – FINANCIAL FAIRY TALES, a collection of some 25 English language financial fairy tales that are mostly based on the narrative of the world’s most famous fairy tales. I crowdfunded and published this book myself.

This website does not cover any news. News and photos are mostly covered on the books’ Facebook pages at the bottom of this page.
