About the Author
Fred is a retired IT professional, born and raised in Aalst, Belgium. His mother-tongue is Flemish, he's fluent in French and his German is good enough for a pub conversation. Fred quit school when he turned seventeen to work in a bank. While "playing" junior banker, he continued his education with evening and weekend classes. Fred never had English classes but, given his interest in computers and IT at a young age, he picked up the language pretty easily (all books and papers were in English). Soon, English became his second language. After working for several years on various IT projects, allover Europe, he started his own company in 1998. Fred ended his professional IT activities in 2012. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A few years ago we met the author of this book Fred and his lovely wife Sandy, for the first time...He: a belgian man, she: an american woman... They met on the WWW while playing a poker game. It's a rare story about love, romance and so much more...
The couple lived a few years in Belgium (where I live) and moved to the States permanently a few years ago...
A year ago, sadly Sandy left this earth and Fred started to write their amazing moments together on his FB. Pure romance, pure love, pure life... 'We', his readers on his FB were stunned! First let me say this... I am so very sure he 'healed' Sandy's family by only sharing these wonderful stories, because they were so intense and real! So 'we' told him; 'Hey Fred, you should write this in a book!' When Fred wrote something, it was like I was IN the story! The feeling that came along while reading it was really overwhelming...
The fact that Fred wanted to share this with the world is just beyond words <3
Fred writes about love like it's his second nature but with so much precision that it will blow you away :)
Even if you didn't know the couple in real life, this love story will take you on a unforgettable journey!
Love shines through! He has a way with words and descriptions of those places they went, foods they tried and the excitement of their love and lives together.
You will not be disappointed in this book! You will experience a romance, world tour, amazing foods they learned to love, cultural adjustments and two special people who will, "be together for ever, all eternity and beyond."
me he wrote about us too, beiing their friends overhere in Grimbergen Belgium
almost finished it
I am Fred's neighbor. We moved in the park shortly after his wife passed away, so we never met Sandy. About a week ago, Fred asked me if I would want to read his book (he'd ordered a proof read copy). The day he gave me the book I read it about halfway before going to bed. I woke up around midnight, went to the bathroom, and thought, "I'll read a little bit more before going back to bed," ... I went back to sleep three hours later, just couldn't stop reading, had to read till the end.
The first thing I said, when I gave it back to Fred, was "This is just great, don't change a word in it."
