Kris De Laat

This website is mostly about my writings, but I'll also tell you something about myself...
I was born on February 15, 1977 (it's up to you to calculate my age), live in the village of Essen in Belgium and am working in the IT sector.
My hobbies however, lie elsewhere and are more creative. For example, I always used to like tinkering and sometimes it happens again that I create something.

Since about the year 2000, I'm writing down my fantasies.
With my first book I tried to take the reader through a portal to that wonderful imaginary existence.
The darker the fantasy, the more I like it. My second book is an obvious example of this.
My third book has a lot of love, humor, horror, spirituality, science fiction,...
Remark: I write in Dutch, but we are working on English translations. In the bibliography below you can see in which language the books are available.

I always liked to work with graphic programs on a computer, just try and see what I can create. In 2014 I got the idea to create animations of stories that I have written. For now I only have one uploaded to YouTube, but I hope to be doing more in the future.

To relax I like to watch movies and series (comedy, action, thriller, sci-fi, fantasy and horror), I listen to music (from melodic rock to gothic industrial metal), I love to read classic horror tales and fantasy stories (E.A. Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, H.G. Wells, J.R.R Tolkien,...) and I immerse myself in reading mythology from all over the world. To keep my body in shape, I regularly run.
