With this podcast I want to give you a daily moment for yourself. Why? Let's keep going. Your kids, the dog who is waiting at the door with a crooked head, a colleague who has already texted three times or friends who have a meltdown. It's all always there. You love your life, but if you're not paying attention, your day will be over before you've had 5 minutes to yourself. With this podcast I help you to hit the pause button of your life. Take5 stories are about love, relationships and the pressure to be always on. You're not here right now. Sit back and relax. It's time to Take5.

Since 2013, I have been writing books, usually exciting stories that deal with current themes as we all experience them, but with a dark edge.SpotlightandIn de familiewere published at Meulenhoff Boekerij and my last thrillerVolg meat Ambo|Anthos. The next one will come in 2021. I love it when readers can't let go of the story and want to know how it ends. Sometimes I take a foray into non-fiction, like in 2019 withRuimte voor liefdean informative lifestyle and storybook full of interviews about love in our time.

Scenario en script

Recently I have been working on several screenplays for TV and film, both on my own material and on commission (available on request). My strength lies in projects for a millennial female target group and with a current theme. Are you looking for a writer for a pitch deck, treatment or scenario for your project or do you need reinforcement for your writing team, please let me know..


Kort verhaal (in opdracht)

Reading a book is wonderful, but we don't always find the time and then a short story is perfect. It gives readers a delicious snack that they can enjoy during an hour in the sun or a long lunch break. Exciting or sexy, moving or confrontational and from 1000 to 15000 words: I like to write them for your website, magazine or newspaper. Send me an email with your question and I will contact you shortly and I will get started for you. The price depends on the nature and length of the (unique) story.
