I was born in Germany, my father being an officer in the Belgian Armed Forces stationed in Germany. I grew up as a Belgian, and later went to London and then Los Cabos, Mexico, where I eventually settled. I am a teacher of World History and Literature at a private high school. Although I love teaching and my students, my passion is writing. I have been writing since the age of six, and I still have the very first story I ever wrote, packed in a tattered suitcase; I have lost the key, and I will have to cut it open to get that story.
I often find inspirations while walking on the beach or sitting on the sand and staring at the waves, and I find that dreams can inspire me too. My goal is to live off my writing, because it is who I am; if I do not write, something is missing in my life.
I also rescue and foster animals; and I volunteer for Baja SAFE, an animal rescue organisation. Naturally, I often have a variety of rescue animals in my house. My dream is to run an animal sanctuary from my land in Los Cabos, and that my writing can support such a dream.
