With all the writing and organizing I did this year, I completely missed the fact that I have been an author for 10 years this year. My debut came out in 2005. De wraak van Deedee (Deedee’s Revenge) is the story of 10-year-old Deedee and her mean, heartless, blowing-up-frogs brother Matthias, who locks her in a sewage pipe on a military assault course.

Deedee can’t tell her parents what her brother did without being punished herself for being on the strictly off limits military fields. Her revenge comes later and is sweet. Or not?
