After a busy and all demanding career in education across the UK and Europe, I now spend my time on what I love doing most: reading and writing. Oh yes, and also gardening, travelling, being with my family, cycling and ….
I have published two books: Half the World (April 2014) is a memoir about living in Iran during the revolution in the nineteen-seventies and Notes on Anna (Oct 2014) is a novel about a girl who escapes the narrow and claustrophobic upbringing of a religious community in The Netherlands, but at what costs?
Half the World and Notes on Anna are available in several formats, ranging from paperback (on Amazon worldwide and Nook) and as e-pub on Amazon (worldwide), Nook and Kobo. For your kindle and as paperback, you can download or buy from: Amazon UK; from Amazon US (worldwide); on your NOOK and on your KOBO. You can no longer buy the books directly from the author because of the complications introduced by the new VAT rules across Europe.

Don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
Happy reading – and of course, I would very much appreciate your reviews and ratings on the site you bought the book(s) from. Many thanks.
I have started a collection of short stories, two of which have meanwhile also been published and are available for your Kindle (world-wide and the UK), Nook or Kobo as well as directly from the author (see above link).
“Living in East Germany under the watchful eye of the Stasi, trust and love are suspect. Suspicion runs deep about who is watching who. When the wall comes down Bach’s Motetten, performed in the St Thomaskirche in Leipzig, form the background music to Pastor Anselm’s betrayal of the woman he once loved.”
The Price of a Teabag:
“Staying in Rotterdam in the middle of the winter after having lived abroad ‘for a long time’ a Dutch woman comments on what she sees around her. When she goes to Delft to meet with an old school friend in rather sad circumstances she realizes her alienation from everything and everyone living in the country of her birth and that there is no going back.”
