Bio

There was a time where I read ten to fifteen books in three weeks time, but since I started writing more (and working more for school), that has toned down. I've been writing almost as long as I've been reading, but mostly in my mother tongue, Dutch, and also mostly short stories. However, on my Wattpad profile, I do have a book with lighthearted short stories in English that are all LGBT+ themed, where I try to write things that are more realistic than what I often see online. At the moment, I have no ambition to ever publish in English.
