Lots of Hilda news
Dear reader, I’ve been on vacation. Sometimes even writers take a break from normal life – but that does not mean a writer (this writer) also takes a break from writing. On the contrary. A lot has happened while I was away to Crete. The fifteenth book in the Hilda the Wicked Witch series has […]
Nanowrimo and a few questions.
Dear reader, If you’ve visited my site / blog more than a few times you’ll be aware of this mad phenomenon called Nanowrimo. National Novel Writer’s Month. The crazy scheme to write a novel in one month, being November. Today, as I was walking down some stairs and up some others, I suddenly realised that […]
The cover for Nanowrimo.
Dear Reader, Even though I am still in the middle of writing this year’s NANOWRIMO story (an urban fantasy), I have the pride and pleasure to present the cover for the new book already: It’s designed by the wonderful artist Renée Barratt of “The Cover Counts“, and I’m eager to put the book together with […]
Dear reader, In November the madness will strike again, and as in the previous years I plan to participate. I’ve had many ideas about what to write for this, my personal seventh edition. I started with no idea, then one idea, after that there were lots of them and I faced the choice – something […]

We are not certain which of those ingredients is present more at the moment, so bear with us until the end and you will know. As we are reaching our destination, you will […]
Dear reader, I finally have the right idea for this year’s Nanowrimo. It will be about an orchestra. Not an ordinary orchestra of course. A while ago at the gym I had the first idea for it, which involved a gym (back then). The idea took hold and morphed a few times, from gym to […]
The devil and his diary
Dear reader, Long time ago I wrote a very silly thing in 30 chapters. It was my work for Nanowrimo, and I had decided to write 30 days of the Devil’s Diary. What started out as a what do I care, as long as it’s words project, turned into a ‘story’ with lots of details about […]
Nanowrimo 2011 for me is over.
For me, Nanowrimo 2011 is over. As is obvious, I made the official goal of 50.000 words, but that was not my personal goal. That was twice the amount, and I achieved that on the evening of 26 November. The entire story, unedited and full of errors as it is, clocked in at 101.269 words, […]
