Kristien Dieltiens (b. 1954) started writing and playing music at a young age. Since her debut in 1997, she has published over a hundred books, of which several have been translated. Dieltiens is at her best when writing historical stories. Her main characters are often outcasts who have to find a place for themselves. She writes evocatively, with humour and she loves a good intrigue.
