Welcome, traveller, to my virtual home! Here, you can find information on me, my world, what I’m working on, and maybe even stumble onto hidden treasure.



jwp_0304-1My name is Avon Van Hassel and I’m an as-yet unpublished author living in Southern California.

I started writing from a young age, forever playing with ideas and trying to make them fit together into interesting stories. I’m fascinated by the grey areas of history and mythology, the missing details, the ‘why’s of behaviour.  I write to make sense of the world, to puzzle out the questions that bother me, to reshape the things I see into images that I can understand. And I hope, along the way, I create something that can be enjoyed by others as well.

Because after all, the world is what you make of it, and I choose to make it a fairy tale.


If you’d like to get in touch with me, send me a note and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can
