Het tweede deel ‘In Schaduwen van Weleer’ verschijnt in de loop van 2012 bij Verschijnsel.Meer recent schrijft hij ook veel in het Engels en publiceert op de Engelse markt voor bladen en verzamelbundels, mede omdat daar in Nederland niet genoeg ruimte voor is.Een bezigheid die hij ook weer heeft opgepakt is het hoofdredacteursschap voor uitgeverij Verschijnsel (de voortzetting van Babel Publications), waar zijn voornaamste aandachtsgebied de e-publicatie-markt is.Hij woont in Hilversum met zijn gezin en naast schrijven werkt hij ook nog wel eens voor een cutting edge technologiebedrijf en doet dat redelijk internationaal.
