1. Are you working on writing a book or planning to publish one a few years from now?
Yep! Still working on The Army of Quermo. I hope to finish it this year so I can start editing.
2. Second-hand or first-hand books?
Most of my second-hand books belonged to my grandmother (and some to my grandfather. I don’t even know if he knows I have them haha), so those are very special to me, but usually I prefer first-hand books, unless the second-hand are in really good condition! (though there’s always this nagging voice in my head: you don’t know where this book has been…)
3. Any weird reading habits?
Hmm what is considered weird? I find everything I do very normal, but there’s probably at least one reading habit that others will find weird haha.
4. Have you read a book in a language other than English?
Yep, in my native language Dutch.
5. Any characters which will stay with you forever?
So many! Of course all the characters from Harry Potter and Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus as well. And many more to name!
6. Any book which helped you overcome an emotional obstacle?
Harry Potter, without a doubt.
7. How many authors have you met?
8. How many signed copies do you own?
One! Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan.
9. Is there any character which you desperately wish for to be real?
Ugh so many. Do I really have to choose? I’ll go with Hermione Granger though, as we’d be good friends.
10. If you were to write a book, what would it be about?
I am writing a book! And there are a lot of other plot ideas running around in my head, but I’m trying to focus on one or two projects at a time. I used to work on several books at once, but that wasn’t really working (when I say several I don’t mean three or four or even five. I don’t remember the exact amount, but it was a lot).
The book I’m currently working on though is the first in a series about two teenagers who have to prevent the devil from returning on earth. If you want to know more, click on ‘Writing’ in the menu and then on ‘The Chosen Ones’.
I’m a bit (read: way) to lazy to think up questions haha, so if you want to answer Zin’s questions go ahead!
