I actually have written thee books when I was 16, 18 and 20. The first two got published in a "Jong Talent" series (Dutch for "Young Talent", I live in the Netherlands), but my publisher wouldn't publish the third manusscript.

I thought I got over it, but maybe I haven't let go of my third 'baby' yet (and I can't find another publisher for it, since it's part of a -failed- trilogy).
The money I earned wasn't enough to build my very own Playgirl Mansion and retire at the tender age of 21, but it's a start. I'm not writing for money, buy the money could buy me more time to write
