Kalapati: A Novel About Life

By (author): Frans van Liempt

Sometimes we hear a story and we think “This will only happen to others”. So did I. How wrong I was!
This true story tells how I started a business in the Philippines. My best friend wasn’t willing to help and my partner also left me after he stole a lot of money. Being all alone, some people I needed took advantage of the fact that I didn’t have a clue about local rules and regulations. In the end, I eventually went bankrupt and lost all I had. There was one last step to take but even there I also failed. Then I met some wonderful, caring people who helped me to get my life back on track again.

This is my story.

Frans van Liempt
Born in the Netherlands in the small city of Haarlem on July 17, 1956. Finished high school but didn't want to study. I started working in an office for social welfare. After about 13 years I resigned to start working as freelance photographer. In a hospital I worked as photographer. This was for one year only and I decided to start studying nursing. Just before finishing I stopped because I felt I did not fit in the structure of hospitals. Now I started working as caregiver in home care which was very satisfying. Not only did I not fit in the hospital culture; I also felt I did not really fit in the Western world. In 2007 I moved to the Philippines. The first few years were good but 2014 was a disaster for several reasons and I came to the point that I didn't want to go on anymore. Thanks to very helpful and caring people I got renewed strength. About that last period I wrote a novel. The manuscript won a writers contest directed by Amsterdam Publishers. They published the book in Dutch. It then became time to translate it into English. That version was published last February.
Also I had started writing blogs and at the moment I am writing a new novel, half fiction and half non-fiction.
Yes, I guess the clairvoyant was right 30 years ago, when she said "I see you writing".
