I was born and bred in Groningen in the Netherlands. After a happy childhood, I continued my journey to High school, which appeared to be a gate to hell as a social science teacher taught us how to raise ghosts during one of the lessons, which rose my curiosity such that I did it alone in my room. From that moment on my feelings were manipulated, though at first I was not aware of that. But as that evil influence grew stronger in the course of years, I found myself confronted with nasty and weird events, set backs and failure. I experienced a strange attraction to vampire stories and the Balkan countries. It would leave me a child of the dark for 35 years. Nevertheless, I began my study French in 1976 but obtained my Bachelor´s Degree only in 1986 due to serious illness of my mother during three years..
I could only got jobs as a substitute teacher at different.schools for several years Therefore, I set up a conversation course. and did voluntary work as a writer of letters of mediation, at Amnesty International,, as a newsreader at the local radio for a year. then as a Dutch teacher for refugees for two years and until 1995 as a legal aid and interpreter for French and English at the council for refugees.This was preceded by a training.
In 1994 Interview with the Vampire inspired me to write down all my own weird and nightmarish events in,Eleonore. I saw my life enacted in that movie, reflected in symbols. The book serves as a serious warning to those who are tempted to raise ghosts inexperienced. Meanwhile, I fought against the evil influence,and as I can´t stand injustice, I also undertook actions to put an end to the hostage-taking in Lebanon through correspondence and contacts of mediation with authorities, embassies, and the families, next a petition on the street to prevent the capital punishment of a Philippine servant who had killed her boss out of self-defense in Saudi Arabia, actions to prevent capital punishment, support farmers during the horrible Mouth and Foot disease.
However, I took more interest in film and acting then in writing novels, and studied the Screenwriter´s Handbook , some excerpts of scripts, L and wrote my first script, St. Martin´s Secret in 2003, played a part in a reconstruction of a missing in a Dutch television program via an casting agency and as a walk-on in several theater performances in 1997. In 2001 I joined a theater performance which was located in a bus garage with people of all classes of society, coached by some English directors.
After a training of dancing, improvising, theater techniques, music and expression, we set up the play¨ Bus stop Vechtstraat¨, we performed with great success four times a week during three months although I had another nasty experience in a relationship.
Then I joined stage 32 in 2005, studied Dave Trottier´s Screenwriting Bible and finished my book Eleonore, which was published in 2007 by Raider Publishing International. Although the book was not successful, it caused led to a lot of fuss and media attention which was exactly my intention.
But it would take another four years before I found out that it appeared to be Elizabeth Bathory´s ghost who had harassed me all those years and I could be freed at last. I rewrote my book which I entitled, Road of Darkness, in 2011. It´s unpublished.
However, several articles were published again in news papers and magazines and I’ve had an interview at the radio and at the television .
I embarked on several scripts.and wrote the first Draft of ,The Vampire Mysteries, in 2009 and a rough draft, Lost Family Ties, and the three parts of The Vampire Mysteries..As I had to take care of my parents for several years, I had little time left to pay attention to my career as a screenwriter.
In 2008 an urgent message of Dolphins during my meditating on them and being a keen environmentalist, felt me obliged to write out their concept, I entitled, Heaven´s Revolution. It´s is about the threats to our planet, cruel oppression and the loss of freedom. I finished this project in 2021 together with the title song, The Cry of the Dolphins. The Sign, another inspiration of Dolphins, followed which relates a revolution of sea life toward the junk in Earth´s oceans. My work addresses social topics centered on mutual human relations … with just a touch of magic!
