Alles begint in de Wereld van Verbeelding…
Ik studeerde journalistiek en werkte als copywriter, tot ik negen jaar geleden het roer omgooide en besloot om te gaan voor mijn passie, het schrijven van jeugdboeken. Na de publicatie van mijn eerste jeugdboek en bestseller Avonturen van Glas, dacht ik dat ik mijn droom wel had waargemaakt. Maar toen realiseerde ik me dat dit schrijven mij een nieuwe droom had gebracht; jong en oud in aanraking brengen met hun passie en hun talent. Hen in contact laten brengen met de Wereld van Verbeelding om ze te inspireren te worden wie ze al in wezen zijn. Een ambassadeur van dromen. En van doen.
Het bedenken en het initiëren van het succesvolle ondernemersproject Verhalen met een hart op een basisschool nabij Hoorn, in Noord-Holland, staat voor wat ik wil bijdragen aan deze wereld. Op deze school schreven kinderen hun dromen op die ze in de Wereld van Verbeelding hadden opgehaald. Vervolgens werden deze verhalen gebundeld in een boek, een boek dat werd uitgegeven door alle kinderen. Kinderen die daarvoor hun talent mochten inzetten.

Internationaal

Vanuit de Wereld van Verbeelding je eigen verhaal opschrijven en je eigen werkelijkheid creëren, brengt je ver. Het brengt mij ook nieuwe wegen en nieuwe bestemmingen. Zo ben ik benaderd door de Engelse handwriting organisatie Start-Bee die het schrijven met de pen bevordert en verschillende schrijfkits uitgeeft. Start-Bee heeft Avonturen van Glas geadopteerd voor haar Dyslexie-handwritingkit. Avonturen van Glas gaat de grens over en zal worden vertaald in het Engels en in het Spaans. Daarnaast werk ik momenteel aan boekenserie en een ‘magische’ training die internationaal zal worden aangeboden. Nieuwe wegen, nieuwe bestemmingen. Ik geniet volop van de reis.

 [:en]Everything starts in the Imaginary World…
I studied journalism and worked as a copywriter. Nine years ago I decided to change course and to follow my dream, writing books for children. After my first book ‘Adventures of Glass’ was published and became a bestseller, I thought that I had reached my goal. However I realised that my writing had given me a new ambition, to encourage people of all ages to find and use their own passion and talent. To help them discover their own Imaginary World and to inspire them to become who they truly already are. An ambassador of dreams and of pursuing those dreams.

The development and startup of the successful business project, ‘Stories from the heart’, at a primary school near Hoorn, North-Holland, is an example of what I would like to contribute to this world. At this school, children wrote about their dreams, which they collected from their imaginary world. All these stories were collectively compiled in a book, which was then published by the children. The pupils were able to utilise their own talents to achieve this.

Writing your story from your imaginary world and creating your own reality can take you to faraway places. It has guided me along undiscovered paths and towards new destinations. I have been approached by Start-bee, an English organisation, which encourages handwriting by selling e-learning programmes with physical Handwriting Kits. Start-bee has adopted ‘Adventures of Glass’ for its Dyslexia Handwriting Kit. ‘Adventures of Glass’ will be an international release and will be translated into English and Spanish.

I am also working on a series of books and a ‘magical’ coaching plan that will be offered worldwide as an accompanying e-learning programme to the Start-Bee Handwriting Dyslexia Programme and Kit. New paths, new destinations. I am thoroughly enjoying this journey!
