Ferdi Schrooten


Journalistic articles, scripts for film and television, books, web publications. I’m a writer. And a story teller. Long ones, short ones. Reality, fiction. Shocking, funny, painful, confronting, bizarre. Entertaining. But also serious, food for thought. About issues that matter. Exiting, inciting and tintillating.
