On this page I share some of my personal activities and interests.

Being a mother

I have a daughter of 6, Charlotte, and a little boy of 1, Tobias. It's a joy to see them grow up and "research" the world around them.


I am an avid reader and enjoy discussing books with others. I regularly review books for the Amsterdam Book Centre and am a proud member of the 'You Review Elite'. See the reviews by me and fellow reviewers here

My face-to-face book club keeps a blog on which we list and (shortly) describe the books we discussed, see here.


Taking time to cook a fancy dinner or to prepare a sweet dessert always make me happy. I share my baking stories on this blog. Beware that it is not updated as often as it used to be.
