What are you working on right now?

A third attempt at a novel: "Searching for Billy". A young, well-brought-up and coddled Englishman feels driven to seek his true identity. After the shocking discovery that he is an adopted orphan, his search leads him to strange places, like a Parisian gay bar, a fraught meeting with his biological father in the dining room of a luxury hotel and an African war child orphanage, before he realises that what he is looking for can never be ‘found’.

Who are some of your favorite writers or favorite pieces of writing?

Recently: "The Rosie Project" and "The Rosie Effect", by Graeme Samson, "Us" by David Nicholls, "A Place Called Winter" by Patrick Gale, and "Nora Webster" by Colm Toibin.

Can you show a sample of your work? (If yes, I will ask you to email it to me later!)

Hi! I am a semi-retired Dutch-Canadian. My first novel has been published - very exciting! I got useful advice from members of this group along the way. Now I'm trying to develop something new - and very different.
