 Retired from a busy and all demanding day job in education consultancy across the UK, 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 eCoverNotes on Anna eCover2

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. Epub files and DRM for other devices can also be bought directly from the author, just click on this link: Corri van de Stege Books and Shorts and then on the book or shorts you wish to purchase.

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).

Motel eCover1Motet of Betrayal:

“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.”



Teabags eCover4

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.”

  1. Because you’re interested in Dutch literature and culture you may also be interested to know that Dutch author Arnold Jansen op de Haar launches his new stand-up writer act on 1 April at 7pm in Great Western Sudios 65 Alfred Road London W2 5EU.

  2. Sounds very interesting, Corri. How come it took you so long to write about it?

    • Life. :) although I wrote a number of short stories I never edited fully or published any, for the simple reason that a day job always demanded too much of my time and energy. I’ve now retired so am able to focus on my writing. Working on a novel that’s been languishing in a drawer and some short stories. Very enjoyable!

      • Certainly enjoyable! It’s so nice you can spend your time on writing now.

  3. Hi Corrie, I’ve finally got ‘Ignoring Gravity’ back from the copy-editor and wondered if you would like to review it on your blog? As it is an advance copy it is only available as pdf at this stage. Let me know what you think. Kind regards, Sandra


  4. I’d be delighted to. Will contact you on your site

  5. Hi there Corri,
    Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out my little corner of the blogosphere and the follow, your support is greatly appreciated. Looking forward to seeing more from you

    Have a great Day, :-)


  6. You’re very welcome Eddie. Very nice to meet you and thanks for popping in.
