Writing is a microbe. Being a journalist is a pleasure. Writing books is a dream come true.

My writings gave me the opportunity to travel extensively in Europe and China, resulting in many articles in various magazines across Europe, an International Journalism Award in Italy, three travel books and a book on modern Eastern Europe art. And last but not least my first novel ‘The Earth has Fever’ my debut. My writings also took me to the Sultanate of Oman, to Salalah in Dhofar, the southern region. Which resulted in a TV documentary, several articles and three books:  ‘ The DNA of Salalah, Dhofar. A Tourist Guide’ (English), Treasure Chest Salalah-Dhofar (Arabic-English), ‘Whispers of Oman’ (English) and al’arba, my blog. The many articles I wrote for a column in Archeologie Magazine, a Dutch magazine, gave me the opportunity to thoroughly study the archaeological sites in Oman and especially in Dhofar. Together with the many encounters I had with the locals living in the desert, in the mountains, by the sea and in the cities, it led me to my latest publication THE CUSTODIANS (English), which can also be seen on mariastories.

And still…I dream on…
