I’m Lieke — long time book nerd

Working my way up to become an authorpreneur.

Growing up, I always had a few books checked out from the library. I would hate Tuesday’s as our local library was closed for the whole day and I wouldn’t be able to get any new books. 

When I realised that I could start writing my own stories and creating my own worlds, it was all I could think about. It was definitely my way of escaping my own reality. I really took it to extreme heights as my education was suffering from lack of attention. All I wanted to do was write, write, write…

About a decade ago, I had to take a step back from writing and focus on my mental health and education. And ever since, I have been wanting to get back into it. I want to make the dream of becoming an author, my reality.

Behind Lieke Alexandra

Now, just writing novels is not enough for me. I have so many more aspirations and interests. I hope to combine them all into my authorpreneur-platform. 

I want to build a platform where 1) my readers can connect with me on a deeper level than just reading my novels. I want to open the doors to my kitchen and show them how I’ve completed these projects.

And most importantly 2) I want to help aspiring authors who are in the same boat as me. Learning along with me, while I fall flat on my face so you don’t have to. Or steal the successful recipe and cook up that fictional world that’s been inside your head for way too long!

This is my journey

2009 – 2014

Started writing

I just started high school and I found a Dutch website (similar to Wattpad) and started publishing my own stories that same day. I couldn’t stop writing and started more stories than I finished.
In 2014, I had to take my education more seriously and writing just wasn’t an option anymore. 

2014 – 2024

Tried, and failed… many times.

In this decade, a lot happened. From turning 18, to now almost turning 28. I finished my education, I worked multiple jobs and finally have my mental health mostly in check. 

2024 – future

Starting my authorpreneurship

And now it’s time to get back to writing (while working a full-time job)!
