<p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:13.0pt;mso-bidi-font-size:
12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;mso-fareast-language:NL">I am based in
Singapore since 2009.<br>
In the eighties I studied law in the Netherlands with a specialisation in movie
copyrights. I started my career though as a scriptwriter for detective &amp;
soap series on Dutch television. After five years I made a career switch. I set
up a small chain of four book &amp; game stores and launched a fantasy
magazine.&nbsp;<br>
At the start of the new millennium I introduced a new event concept called Elf
Fantasy Fair (later changed into Elfia; more info at www.elfia.com). It
developed into the most successful fantasy costume event in Europe and is organised
twice a year. To give you an idea of the increasing popularity of self made
costumes (in Asia known as Cosplay), please visit our website costumeflash.com
.<br>
&nbsp;<br>
I never thought I would continue writing but the impact of the deaths of both
my beloved father and my eldest brother, brought my attention back to my
previous interests in religion and cults. In the nineties I was an active member
of the Rosicrucians, a western esoteric cross-over between Christianity,
Buddhism and even Hinduism. After I was kicked out (too critical), I lost my
interest in religion, but I guess that death -as it came closer- forced me
somehow to write down my own ideas about the after life. And once I started
with my first book 'Ghost on the Run', I actually couldn't stop. It had to be a
series. I normally have a very optimistic view on life and on the possibilities
we as humans beings can create, but now that death was running in the family, I
started thinking about the possibilities we as human beings can maybe also
create in the after life. 'Last Terminal' with its first book 'Ghost on the
Run' will contain at least six parts, and an idea about a second run of six
parts is under construction.<br>
&nbsp;<br>
Beside the writing, and the event organising, I am also running agricultural
and educational projects in South East Asia, more specific in Cambodia. It's a
next step in the big idea that I committed myself to: free education for highly
motivated students by unpaid but highly motivated teachers.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
