Koos Verkaik, a ‘Dutchy’ with spunk and an inexhaustible drive and fathomless imagination, is one of the most productive authors of the moment.
We deem it our special privilege to work with an author of his caliber and have him on board. Besides a fast growing pile of novels in his specific genre: Mystery, Adventure and Magic, he also writes children’s books.
Koos wrote his first novel, a sci-fi, when he was only eighteen years old, during a weekend; it was published immediately—he was only sixteen when he wrote a series about a young space traveler who went in search of adventures on a far-away planet; it got published in the weekly newspaper (three pages each week). He wrote his first novel, the Sci Fi Adolar, in a weekend! It got published right away… He published with big Dutch publishers such as De Arbeiderspers in Amsterdam. With his books All-Father and Wolf Tears, he earned the name critics gave him of The Dutch Stephen King.
Koos Verkaik is the writer of about 60 books, both children’s books and novels, many hundreds of comic scripts, he has been a copy writer and is working on different screenplays and new novels now.
