Meet the Author

Hans Faasse, best-selling author of 'Love on the high seas' and ‘Stranded on St. Lucia’ was born on February 23, 1946.


Hans grew up as the fourth child of five children in Ede, The Netherlands and graduated from the Navigator College in Delfzijl, a decidedly prestigious institute that produced many Captains of the high seas for decades. In fact it was on his father's advice that he decided to follow the family tradition of taking to the seas as navigator. His Father, Kees, was himself an exception to the family heritage and had chosen a life of creative entrepreneurship which would prove to be an inspiration for Hans after a lengthy period of sickness ended his dreams of becoming a merchant navy captain. In sharp contrast, his mother, Corrie, was a pious woman and dedicated housewife with a love for gardening and home grown cooking.


Only when he married his sweetheart of the Christian youth club and started a family did Hans settle into his life as a landlubber. Two children and a few jobs later he realized that his desire for adventure was still in his blood. When the opportunity to combine his commercial skills with the desire of adventure suddenly landed on his plate, he did not think twice and went for it. As a result the family moved to Singapore in 1984 and Hans became the regional manager for a European dairy company.


The family had some great years together and although the couple got along fine when he was at home in between travels they slowly drifted apart in those first years in Singapore. His wife, pious as his own mother, had never been truly happy in the Far East. Once the kids left for Holland the marriage was doomed.


After their divorce Hans took some time off and for many months traveled through South America with his son and a few years later took his daughter on a similar journey through North America. After this time of bonding with his kids and away from all other worries he was ready for a fresh challenge. These new challenges took Hans from Singapore to Hong Kong and finally Malaysia. In 1998 he remarried and settled in Kuala Lumpur. The newly wed couple got two lovely daughters and they have been enjoying their family life since.


Hans puts his writing career down to his own love for reading fiction and an inner urge to go beyond his comfort zone and give something totally different a try.


In 2007 he decided to write his first novel drawing from his own experience in the merchant navy and his personal struggle with his Calvinistic upbringing. Adding to this a healthy dose of romance and the result was the enthusiastically received novel ‘Love on the high seas’.


Recently, Hans completed his second maritime novel, ‘Stranded on the high Seas’ which delves into the plethora of emotions that come when losing your self in an impossible love. ‘Stranded on St. Lucia’ was the result.


The sales figures for 'Love on the high seas” kept on growing - to the extent that Hans has now made both of his books available as e books on smashwords.com
