Katrien Van Hecke

Katrien Van Hecke (Torhout, 1960) was born on 21 June, the first day of summer. As a child she was very proud of it, and now she’s still! Katrien obtained a master’s degree in history and worked as a civil servant for a while. Now, she gives full-time lectures on literature and workshops Literary Dining and Cakes on Narration. She also writes fairy tales and historical novels. ‘Because,’ according to Katrien, ‘digging up historical facts is fun, but it is even more fun to bring them to life in stories.’
