My name is Kim ten Tusscher. I'm an Dutch author. I've published eight books so far with Dutch publisher Zilverspoor. Seven are set in the same, advancing world. Four books have been translated into English. I selfpublish these English editions. Writing hasn't always been on top of my mind. In my twenties I pursued a career in photography. During my study, I got interested by documentary photography. I looked for similarities between people and tried to invalidate prejudice. The camera gave me access to 'other' worlds, but also created a distance to my subject I would rather not have. In my final year, I traveled to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. I came back with much more than pictures. The culture of these people proved to be a lasting source of inspiration. My experiences with these people end up in my stories in many different ways. Than I rediscovered writing and fell in love with it. Fantasy proved a great way of exploring the world around me. The intense subjects I write about, challenge me to make sense of what's happening around me in real live. I love to read stories that are set in the grey area between good and evil, so that's also what I write. I'm known for creating convincing characters and a world which isn't black or white. As a writer, I have overcome the distance I felt towards my subject when I was a photographer.
