Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Ouch. Read it. We really need to talk about this. The new eugenics and how we treat each other.

How the book came about has a lot to do with having become the target of a phenomenon called sadistic stalking and hacking, oddly enough, an experience that I hope you, reader, will never have to endure. (It will likely mean that I will pass away within the next two years, and I wish I were kidding about that.)
When did you first start writing?
In primary school. I read lots and lots of books, too. In secondary school, I sometimes told the librarian that I needed a book for a school project to get access to books in the adult book section (as opposed to the children's section).

I was very disappointed when I realized that I would never be able to read all the great books that are written all over the world (but hey, I had to accept it).

My author video
In this very relaxed video, I introduce myself as an author, and I notably talk about my last book, We need to talk about this. I shot this short video on 18 August 2018 when I finally figured out how to make HD videos with my cell phone.

Crunchy Peanuts is a dark and bitter booklet about certain aspects of my life in England. It contains a couple of tough nuts to crack, but also a few marshmallows and simple sandwiches. At the center of these tough nuts are anger, hurt, protest and disappointment. It is about some experiences I have had after moving to the UK.

Mixed Spices contains various kinds of very short stories and a few poems, partly in the style of Spike Milligan and Donald Barthelme. Some of the material is downright hilarious or as light as a fairy tale, some of it is dark and gloomy, and some of it tries to trip you up the way certain zen koans do, with their many possible interpretations.
