Floor Bal

Writer Floor Bal loves to translate and explain complex subjects for the young children. During the day she works as a researcher for the Dutch government. At night she writes a book. Or two.

They can be about small stories, such as finding out your own family history. Or very big stories: the origin of the universe, the earth and humanity. But the subject is always the past. That way her degree in history comes in handy.

Bal received the Dutch Vlag en Wimpel Award 2019 for ‘Het hele soepzootje’. The book has been nominated by the Belgium Kinder- en Jeugdjury 2020.
