Hi, my name is Marjolein Smit.
(aka Mack, because my name is hard to pronounce)
After I graduated from the Amsterdam Theater Academy ( ATA),
as an actor and theater maker, I decided writing was the way to go for me.
I started writing a movie script. I enjoyed that so much that it all just snow balled from there. Even though I am Dutch I prefer to write in English because it feels like this language has more options available to me for expressing myself. Another advantage to writing in English is that I have a bigger market available to me to sell my screenplays to. Humor and cockiness are two things that you will always find in my writing. I am a sucker for underdogs winning and happy endings so that is included most of the time as well.
