Hi, I'm Nickie. I was born in Flanders (Belgium) and still live there in the medieval town of Dendermonde. I have been making up stories from the day that I could hold a pen and used to do this when I was bored to death with the slow pace of our lessons.
As history was one of my favorite subjects at school, it is only natural that I started writing historicals. My preference goes to the 16th and 17th century, although occasionally I'll write a book which is set in another time. My stories are full of adventure and fast actions, suspense and there is always a damsell in distress.
Contrary to historical romance, my heroines don't love one man exclusively. They have one great love, but this is not necessarily the first man in their lives. In my opinion, you have to remain objective.
Up to now I have five books published. I made some mistakes at finding a publisher first, but then took matters in my own hand and began a publishing company myself. My two books in Dutch sold well, due to my own efforts. Alas, I had to give up the firm due to illness, which did not allow me to deal with all the stress anymore. Now I'm on the mend, and writing is all that is left to me.
I am working on a sixth novel and a collection of short stories, and hoping to find representation for it. Anyone interested may always contact me.
Interests: reading, music (most genres), travelling, good food & drink, horseback riding, skiing, ...
