I wrote and published my first two books with a printing-on-demand publisher when I was between the ages of 12 and 14. I made this author page without a second thought, and since then, I've pursued traditional publishing on several occassions, in both English and Dutch, sadly to no avail.
As for now, education is my first priority. When I'm in the mood, I still write. But I'm not looking to get published at the moment.
While the books I wrote as a child embarass me, they also remind me of my childhood dreams. Dreams I might one day turn into reality.
