About the Author

I studied History and Dutch Law. For twenty years I was involved in politics, the last ten years as a Mayor. Now, at last I have the time to write, my great passion.
The story about this quest by Paul van den Berg sprouted after my friend Dimitris died of a heart attack. He often told me about his Dutch friend and said he wanted to visit him again. Unfortunatly he never got the chance to do this.
A few months later, Dimitris died. I forgot the name of his friend and because of this, could not search for him. Gradually the idea for this story was created.

  1. I’ve already read this book in Dutch and I loved it! I really like the way Els Boot is itching my fantasy, words becomes images in my head. It shows the struggle of people, growing up in a culture or belief where being yourself is a daily struggle. For that matter, I think a lot of people can emphatize with Paul and I hope those people will find the power and love in themselve to follow their own dreams and live their lives the way they want to live their lives.
