I live with my husband and two sons in Bruges (Belgium).
In 1997 I published my first Young Adult novel: Don’t tell anyone and I have since been very busy writing more books.
My last published Young Adult novel Moordgriet was selected for the shortlist of the Dutch YA-prize 'Jonge Jury 2015' and I have received a 'Vlag en Wimpel' as co-author of 'What Dog Knows' (author: Sylvia Vanden Heede).
Some of my books were translated into Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, Danish, French, Swedish and English.
This book is about you
So cute, so sweet, so snug.
This book is about little, lovable triple-trap-toes, about tender lips on a belly, about cuddle-soft hands and kissing-sweet cheeks. About being snug-close to each other and whisper-dear words. But above all, this book is about … you.
