Iris van Ooyen is a creative entrepreneur living in the south of The Netherlands. She turned her own curse into a gift when she learned to embrace her sensitivity.
A ferocious reader, 10-year-old Iris was already exploring the adult section in the library—having read everything in the children’s section more than once. Even at age three, she ‘read’ out loud to her little brother—recounting her favorite stories word for word.
Iris always has more ideas than she has time. One came knocking several years ago—after avoiding her heroine’s story for over a year, she finally gave in and put pen to paper. Over three years, she thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Iris, Auran, Jacob, Merlow and the other characters in this book. It was an equal joy to learn more about the craft of writing.
When Iris isn’t working on her novel, she helps her clients tap into their SWEET POWERTM. An MBA with a background in corporate marketing, Iris combines her extensive business experience with her renowned razor-sharp, intuitive insights to support sensitive souls struggling in their career, business, or high-performance lives.
She’s also the author of Radiant: How to Have All the Energy You Need to Live a Life You Love.
Iris has a closet with too many dresses and doesn’t go anywhere without organic dark chocolate and a bottle of filtered water. Nothing makes her smile as much as the huge fragrant roses from her garden. Except perhaps books.
