I'm a writer, collector of books, part-time eccentric with too many imaginary friends and the blessed owner of fibromyalgia since age 13. Because of my health I'm without an occupation, but with more interests than I have time, or energy, I have no problem keeping busy.
I like cats, dislike chocolate, play far too many computer games and don't read nearly enough books to catch up on my ever expanding To Read list. My curiosity knows no bounds, my sense of humour has performance anxiety and my imagination likes to be in charge.
The corner I most frequently inhabit is Fantasy. No matter the story, fantasy elements usually find a way in, intended or not. I write in English despite Dutch being my first language, and I'm a pantser. Outlines have never worked for me, but it isn't for want of trying. My characters just have a mind of their own that isn't to be argued with (much).
After narrowly missing the previous one, I did my first NaNo in 2011, followed by all subsequent events in 2012. In hindsight that might have been a bit on the crazy side.
Yet still I keep coming back.
