Born to Dutch parents and raised in Colombia and England, I am a rootless wanderer with itchy feet. I've spent the last few years living and working in The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Sudan and Bulgaria, but I have every confidence that I will now finally be able to settle down among the olive groves of Andalucia.

I'm an avid reader and film fan and I have an MA in creative writing for film and television.

Ten Books Which Shaped My Reading Life
Book number 1, Animal Farm. 
This is the one that started it all for me. I never used to read much before this (except for comic books and books I was forced to read at school).
