Donations, and other ways you can help me

Making it as a writer and researcher isn't easy, especially if you start from scratch and want to keep some independence. I figured that I had to start building skills, credibility and a portfolio. I trust, by now, you've become somewhat familiar with my work, why else would you be here? I'm currently working on my fourth book and I am also pitching essays to international magazines and newspapers.

Since my area of expertise is in a niche-market I don't sell a lot of books and articles. In fact, I've only once managed to earn something that looks like a monthly living wage. And that's why I am writing this page.

About us, I am married to Lea, a physical therapist, we have two boys, Huub and Loek, and we live in Geleen, which is a small industrial town in the south of the Netherlands.

If you ask what my motivation is, I will tell you that I want to leave this planet a better place than I found it for the love of all the beautiful creatures that live on it, but particularly for these three.

 So how can you help me and my family?
