Although a Blender user for over ten years, I have to admit that I am an enthusiastic but (very) mediocre artist at best. I discovered however that I really enjoyed helping people out with programming related questions and a couple of years ago when Packt Publishing was looking for authors on the BlenderArtists/Python forum I stepped in.
So far this has resulted in several books in print:
Blender 2.49 Scripting, ISBN 9781849510400
Published by Packt Publishing in April 2010.
Python 3 Web Development, ISBN 9781849513746
Published by Packt Publishing in May 2011.
Recently I switched to self publishing and my third book: 'Open Shading Language for Blender', distributed by Smashwords, was the first result.
My latest book is called 'Creating add-ons for Blender'
I maintain a blog on Blender related things, 'Small Blender Things' (blog.michelanders.nl) and I keep an eye on the coding forums at http://www.blenderartists.org/forum/ where you can also contact me via private message if you like, my nickname there is 'varkenvarken'.
Recently I started offering some Blender add-ons on BlenderMarket, the first one called WeightLifter, a vertex group tool.
I live in a small converted farm in the southeast of the Netherlands where we raise goats for a hobby. We also keep a few chickens and the general management of the farm is left to our cats. This arrangement leaves me with with enough time to write the occasional book.
