Quick Q&A:

So you’re Dutch, do you run into complications when writing?

Yes, I’m Dutch but write books in English. My PA (Christi) does all the first rounds of edits. Or as she puts it… translates my dutch-glish. This sometimes leads to interesting discussions when Dutch traditions or sayings flow into my stories.


What made you decide to write?

The first novel I wrote was Zack. I started writing after I saw a black and white picture of Joshua Sean McCann by FuriousFotog (Golden Czermak). I shared the photograph on my facebook with the statement that I could write a biker by just one look at this picture. My friends told me; do it. And so I did. Funny detail? One year later to the date, I have Joshua on the cover of book three in that series.


When you self-publish, do you do it all yourself? 

The majority, yes. But there are a few things you can’t do yourself, or make that I won’t do by myself. For one, my PA; Christi Durbin. She’s my rock and also does the first round of edits for each of my books. She’s also the main editor for one of my series and will be for other books in the near future. I love her opinion and also all the work she does as my PA (and that’s a lot!). Then I have another editor for my main series. I also have a few amazing readers who pimp the hell out of me and I appreciate everything they throw out there. Although the word self-publish sounds as a one person job… it clearly isn’t. It’s hard work for the writer but also for the team around her and I am truly grateful to have the people around me who work with me.


Any addictions?

Yes. I’m a gum addict. My favorite brand is Mentos White. I like to pop too, not blow bubbles but keep it in my mouth so it pops louder and many times in one go. Annoys the hell out of my husband.


Where do you get your inspiration?

Cardio. It’s as simple as that. When my feet are running, so is my mind. I can go over storylines and it just flows freely.
