After a busy and all demanding career I now spend my time on what I love doing most: reading and writing. Oh yes, and also gardening, travelling, being with my family (dispersed across the world), learning to play the clarinet, cycling and ….
I have published three books: Half the World (April 2014) is a memoir about living in Iran during the revolution in the nineteen-seventies; 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; and For the Love of Ilsa is about a family dispersed across the world. When one of three siblings discovers a secret all three will have to reassess their relationships with each other as well as with their parents and partners
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.
When she stays in Rotterdam in the middle of the winter after having lived abroad a Dutch woman goes to the nearby town 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.
