A.B. Dapperens


A.B. Dapperens

A.B. Dapperens is a Dutch author who sings her way through life in platform boots and a head filled with clouds of magic, mystery, and fantasy.

Born and raised in Zutphen, the Netherlands, Blaine grew up telling her favourite doll stories to help herself fall asleep, until she discovered writing them was even more fun. In between writing prose, Blaine enjoys playing with words and meanings to fit her feelings into the short form of poetry.

Regular meetings with her singing- and wellness coach keep Blaine from disappearing into her own world completely, a feat very much appreciated by her long-suffering husband.
