In short

  • I was born with an intense curiosity for life and people. I always observed and thought about things, the world, people's characters, the animals. I enjoy to be alone. In my own company I usually thrive creatively, this trend I suppose, has fueled my imagination. I write poetry and I paint, not all too well I must admit, jack of all trades. I have written all my life, my drawers are full of diaries, poems, notes and sketches.
    I wish I could write what I have imagined, seen and experienced; for others to see that everything is possible, even if you fail, you've tried, and it's done. That's what counts, (even though a bit of success would be welcome).

My Favorites: Reading and Writing

  • My favourite, favorite book, is the 'Life of Pi' by Yann Martel, a simply extraordinary book that left me breathless. If I had the imagination, colour and vision of this writer, I would be a very happy chappy.
    Of course, who can't leave out "100 Years of Solitude' by Gabriel Garcia Marquez..
  • J.M. Coetzee.
  • Jonathan Franzen, Tony Morrison, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, J.M. Coetzee, Daphne du Maurier, Pablo Neruda, Ernest Hemingway, Blake, W.B. Yeats, W. Shakespeare.
