About me

Hi, I’m Sylvia van Bruggen, and I’m a poet, author, blogger and joy seeker. I’ve self-published several books, and am hard at work to add at least 3 titles to my line-up in 2020.

I'm passionate about living a simple life, living my passion: writing.

I have chronic pain, and in the last couple of years, I completely lost my mojo thanks to a new foot injury.

On the last day of 2019 I realised that I really needed to infuse 2020 with joy. I'd lost my knack for it, and I wanted it back.

I started to focus on doing what I loved, and now I have found the joy in writing and blogging again after an intense couple of months of rediscovering, and I'm now ready to get to work.

I'm working on a couple of projects, a memoir, a journal, a couple of poetry books and I can’t wait to start editing a novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo in 2017.

I’m back, I’m writing, and I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time.
