Margreet de Heer lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with her husband Yiri T. Kohl. A long time ago, she studied Theology at the University of Amsterdam, but through divine intervention she ended up being a comic artist. She worked at the famous comic store Lambiek from 2000 until 2005, and wrote a book about Dutch comics together with Kees Kousemaker.

Since 2005 she is a full-time comic book artist producing a wide range of work, from children's comics in magazines to cartoons at business conferences. In 2007 she started making philosophical comic "reports" for newspaper Trouw. This resulted in a book edition in 2010 which was a bestseller and is published in the U.S. by NBM with the title 'Philosophy: a Discovery in Comics'.

Neil shared a note and highlight from
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
he was no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, because yesterday had brought it.
This is something that I have discovered over the years to be peculiarly true. Sometimes when terrible things happen to you, it can actually be kind of a relief, because you’re no longer tensing yourself and wondering, “Well what would happen if this terrible thing happened? I hope this terrible thing doesn’t happen.” And then one day you wake up and you’ve lost a job or whatever, and you think, “Oh, okay good. I’ve lost my job. I don’t need to worry about that anymore.” So, I was looking at beginning the story with Shadow in prison. He’s watching everything a little bit warily, and you will ...more

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I got interested in the idea that love is often used as a kind of blanket explanation for things. I mean, battered wives, for instance: "Why did you go back to him?" "Oh, I loved him." "Why did you embezzle fifteen million pounds and run away to the other side of the world?" "Oh, well, because I was in love." All that and then you don't ask anything else. I thought if I just say, these people needed love and they found it, then it kind of explained it away. I wanted to look at their behaviour and how love can inspire the best and the very worst in human behaviour but love itself is not behaviour. So I avoided the word 'love' until the very end and it's the last word in the novel. I wanted to explore what people will do when they're in such terrible need of love. If there was a big idea then that was it. Then, of course, I hope that if it's a story worth reading it's the characters themselves who make you want to read it, not the big idea. I don't think a big idea drives a novel usually. Something else has to engage you on a much more kind of personal level. ”
