Hi! I’m Minerva.

I was born in 1991 in Belgium, where I work as a pharmacist. Although my native language is Dutch, I developed a love for the English language through shows on the BBC, like Sherlock and Doctor Who. That’s why I usually write in English.

Long before I learned English, when I was five, I wrote down my first story about a princess picking berries. The second was a lot more exciting, about a bear who met a pirate-detective.

My writing is inspired by the universes of J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K. Rowling, and Sir Terry Pratchett.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy baking, drawing, handlettering, yoga, and learning languages.

If you want to hear me talk about writing, Amphibian Press published a YouTube interview with me in May 2018.
