To celebrate the upcoming release of BOREAS EN DE VIJFTIEN VRIENDEN (Boreas and the Fifteen Friends), I was interviewed by the unsurpassable Sandra Nickel for her amazing and popular blog What Was On Her… Sandra interviews writers and illustrators of children’s and young adult literature or, as she says, she gets to the heart of our work and lives by asking What Was on Their … minds, desks, play lists, refrigerators, and more.


So, if you want to know all about my method writing style, also called the ‘No Guts, No Glory Style’, hurry over to her blogpost and read What Was on My mind and more!
