BOOK REVIEWS (Nils Visser)

Joined 6 years ago from The Low Countries




Also follow me on:

Spent childhood and youth abroad in Asia, Africa, North America and Europe. Didn't have much to show for it at the end of the road, except for some great experiences, a host of friends, and a spoonful of English. Being fundamentally lazy, tried to make a living with the language skills of the latter, rather than learning new tricks or developing fresh skills. I.e. secondary school teacher of English at various Dutch secondary school. However, my insistence that education should be fun in order to be effective never really worked out.

Currently trying to make a living as a full-time writer in Brighton.
