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 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).
“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.”
On my blog I post book reviews and my thoughts on writing, travelling and life in general.
