Years ago I went to live in Andalucia (Spain) and now I have become more Andalus, than anything else in my life. My last job was as a member of the university council of the University of Delft, TU Delft (Netherlands), a place of learning, also attended by the engineers in my family.
After many years in the Academic environment I grew tired, very tired, struggling in a society that ate energy. My path accidentally passed through the village where I now live, the village recognized me before I recognized her and locked her lost son in her heart in an embrace that would never let go. I recognized my friends who were good and welcoming, who helped me make up for lost time in life. I bought a vineyard and they turned me into a vintner. I was lucky, I became Andalusian. vaya con Dios! God Bless!
After 11 years of wine making, and building up my own bodega, I started to make time for myself in a more extensive way. I started publishing short stories and articles on 'XEAD' and 'Plazilla'. Every morning, when my thoughts are still clean and uncontaminated by news and what have you, I rise.
At six o'clock, I start my pc and I write for two hours to produce a maximum of two pages for a new novel or short story. So far 8 of my books have been published, some in Dutch, others in English and/or Spanish. You can find more information on the following link about my books. http://plazilla.com/page/4295153962/deel-dit-aub-boeken-van-san-daniel
My publisher has agreed to have my books available in three languages, Dutch, English and Spanish. The latter two will cover most of the world, as English and Spanish are universal languages.
At 8.00 o'clock I am off to the village, I have a black coffee, a café solo, to boost the metabolism and it is off to the gym. (Albox fitness) After a workout (6 days a week), I return to village where I meet my farmer(vintner) friends, and we share a few stories, a glass of wine, a tapa, and it is to go to the farm again.
As head editor of 'the Dutch literary guide' I then read the new submissions for the quarterly numbers in my study.
After a few hours of work on the farm, it is time for research and fan mail. I love my life and I love my family and friends,. I usually turn in early or I take my bike for a spin to unwind.
I hope you will enjoy my books as many before you have. God bless you all,
