Witches float my boat. Or do they fly my broom?

Witches got me started.

Hilda the Wicked Witch
The first one

All you faithful followers of this erratic and occasionally updated blog will be aware that I have this thing with witches. In fact my whole writing/publishing ‘career’ started with a witch we all know. Grimhilda the Wicked Witch. Hilda for friends.

Here you see the very first cover of the very first story. My, a lot has changed…

And now there’s a new witch on the block!

Ladies and gentlemen alike… may I present…

Kobie Ketelaars. A new witch?

Some of you may already know Kobie. She started life in Dutch but I thought it so much fun that I have rewritten her story into English.

What can I tell you about Kobie?

Kobie’s up for her second and hopefully last attempt to pass her exams. She’s not the most zealous student so this presents a serious challenge. What she loves is to read – especially about witches. She would go through lengths to be a witch herself, so she devours anything about the subject she can get her hands on.

Her life is an ordinary one, almost to the point of boring, until she comes across a book with the title “Witch’s Training”. She has to have this book, and that tome has more in store for her than she could have hoped for. In her heart Kobie knows witches and magic don’t exist but this book is set on proving the opposite!

Can Kobie become a witch with the help of “Witch’s Training”? If yes, how does that come about? Strange happenings and a kidnapping are suddenly part of Kobie’s life, making it far more exciting than she had ever wished for.


So there you have it. A new book is set to appear. The date of dates for Kobie is March 7th, so it will be a while, but no worries: time passes quickly these days!
