So I really hate filling in these kinds of things... Which is why I've been postponing it since forever! But my profile just looked so empty without.

Basic things to know about me:

1. I'm Dutch and English is not my native language, so if there's any grammar or spelling mistakes please let me know! :) Thank you.
2. I love writing and reading! (If you know or have a good story let me know and I'll happily read it!)
3. Without music I really don't know how I'd survive the day. I listen to pretty much anything and I'm always open to suggestions.
4.I have the most adorable cat ever and you can count on it that pretty much anything I write is done with her sprawled out on either my lap, arms or keyboard. xD

My stories:

Soul Seeker Series:

Thicker Than Blood = finished! :) Yay, still think I'm dreaming about that!
Where the Wild Things Are = Just started, updates at least once a week hopefully!

Your Violence, Their Silence = Something else entirely but steadily progressing. Updates might be a little slow.



Lately more and more people ask me to read their story! I really like to help out but I just CAN't get to all of them and still have time to write. So don't be disappointed if I don't reply to your request or don't comment on your story. ;)

Dear Ruth,
             Thicker Than Blood is an amazing story I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! It has something that a writer always needs in a book. It keeps pulling people into the story and won't let them go. It plays with your emotions. When Nate or Amelia is scared, the reader fears for them. When an evil character enters the story, the readers are filled with anger and question. I love books like this. Keep up the good work and soon, all your books will be vortexes sucking in thousands of people to adore your work. Please read my works and comment what you think and advice on the way!
