Stories

My speculative stories are mostly about goddesses, gods and the limits of their power. The pantheons and characters I create are new at first glance but build upon tropes and archetypes from mythologies across the world.

The Sweet Salt of the Earth (part of Dutch short story collection Meer dan Menselijk)

The people of Forest Fields shower most of their gods with admiration and offerings but to Ragda, goddess of roots and all things beneath the earth, they are not so generous. After all, the things she controls lay beneath the ground, unseen under layers of dirt and sand, out of sight and out of mind. They say tireless Ragda herself does not mind the lack of people’s affection for her and continues to make things grow and flourish - no matter the taunts and ridicule she has endured from god and human alike since memory serves. Until one day, the limit she herself did not know existed is reached.
