I'm an aspiring author from the Netherlands, somewhere in my mid-twenties. I'm pretty much into YA literature, usually fantasy-ish, or folkloristic, historical fantasy. But I like trying out new genres of literature too :)
While I usually write in my own language - that would be Dutch - sometimes I don't, because English is a pretty neat language too. I hope to publish both English and Dutch stories here!

I was born on the East Coast of the United States, and I'm not comfortable living in one place for too long. Most people who know me say that I'm a nomad, but I'm happy as long as I have a pen and paper handy. I spend most of my money on travel because I want to visit as many places as possible before zombies take over the world.
Most of my free time is dedicated to devouring stories about the living dead. I finally turned my zombie obsession into something productive when I decided to write a novel about the zombie apocalypse, told from the perspective of a psychotic zombie expert.
I also write for Zombie Guide Magazine with four other talented writers. We post new articles every day on our website: http:/ ... read more

Benjamin M. Weilert . . . What does the 'M' stand for?
Mountain Climber, Movie Connoisseur, Master of Science, and (of course) Multi-novel Writer
Benjamin M. Weilert was born in Colorado in 1985.
While he went to school for Mechanical Engineering (eventually earning a Master’s Degree), he has found science to be interesting enough to write fiction about it. He likes to classify his novels as “science fantasy,” wherein the science is real and (semi) accurate, but portrayed in a fantasy setting to make it accessible to non-scientific readers. If you want stories that are surreptitiously educational, he’s your man.

After many years of thinking 'I could be a published writer' I'm finally getting round to actually being one. What genre? Travel writing, history, why I'm even working on a piece of fiction.
I live in Birmingham, UK with my 2 daughters (one at university during term time) and in my day job I'm a Sustainability Consultant.
My personal book collection includes politics, cooking, gardening, and as much Nordic crime fiction as I can get my hands on.
Favourite books ever? My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell, which I read as a teenager and eventually inspired me to visit Corfu; and Not Now, Bernard by David McKee, which I read to my children and will one day read to my grandchildren.
