First female author to win the Prix Ouest- France / Quai des Bulles
During the weekend of 30 / 31 October 2021, I was surprised by the news that Jours de Sable (Days of Sand) won the prestigious Prix Ouest-France during the festival of Quai des Bulles, in Saint-Malo, France. Furthermore, it was the first time that a female author won the award. It was a huge honor, and I feel so proud. I enjoyed winning the award during the amazing festival of Quai des Bulles, which finally took place again. During the weekend I did many autograph sessions for Jours de Sable and Taxi, which was released in France last September at La Boite A Bulles.
Overall it was a fantastic weekend and I want to thank the lovely jury, my publishers, the festival team, and my friends from the Netherlands who joined me on my trip.
