Hiya! Welcome to my BookGorilla author page. I am an author from the Netherlands and I write my books in two languages. Sometimes, I write them in Dutch and then translate them to English, and sometimes, I do it the other way around. Since I love reading young adult literature, that's what I write as well! I love getting lost in fantasy worlds or visions of the future, so most of my books fall into the paranormal and dystopian categories. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me on Twitter, Facebook, or by email!"
