Jaap Cové grew up in The Netherlands, and lives and works in Palm Springs, CA (USA). After high school he traveled the world, developing an interest in anthropology, in which he holds a Master’s degree from the University of Amsterdam. The cultures of the world, and the diversity of spiritual insights, are inexhaustible sources of inspiration in his writing.

‘I'm fascinated by the way people express the unknown—that which cannot be known—in many different ways, in symbolism, cults and religions. It keeps surprising me, and also satisfies my own need for answers.’

Another one of Jaap’s passions is music, a recurring theme in his stories. As a drummer and percussionist, he has had many years of experience on the road from Holland to the United States.
