What is your book all about?
HIM, After the UFO Crash is very dear to me, loved to writ it.
This is, in short, what happens in this novel:
The race for the moon.
Arthur Croft, great rocket engineer, will sent a special capsule into space, hoping that it will be intercepted by extraterrestrial creatures.
Then he commits suicide!
Arthur Croft and many others who deal with space travel strongly believe that UFO’s are a reality.
Jasper Froch, an American hippie, learns how to control the phenomenon of synchronicity and finds out that all kinds of coincidences lead him into a certain direction. A Swiss psychiatrist, asks Jasper to make friends with a special patient: a rich American by the name of Francis Lockhart.
Sanguine, Florida. A UFO crashes there. Sanguine changes: people act strange, and many of them turn out to be a genius!
There are also murderers who are so clever that they become a danger for the USA.
The army is ready to destroy the town, but then Jasper finds out about the influence of the UFO, about Arthur Croft and his own role in a very dangerous game…
What inspired you to write the book?
There is a mix in this novel of true psychology and fantasy: Carl Jung’s synchronicity and the phenomenon of UFO’s. After closing the book, there is a lot to think for the readers and one will come to the conclusion: it all seemed impossible, but on the other hand, things like this might be true…
What is your target audience for the book?
I am know for writing about Magic, Mystery & Adventure. My books are for everyone who likes those three topics…
I received wonderful reviews. This one is from a ready from the USA, Marjory:
HIM: After the UFO Crash by Koos Verkaik is a book that you’ll read and then you’ll wonder did you really read what you did. Before beginning though you must be sure to have your seatbelt on nice and tight, then hold on because you’re about to go on one twist and turned ride of your life. Once you open the first page, it will grab and hold you tightly until you finish reading the last page. As you are reading, you will begin to feel that you are being drawn in and become a part of the story. Then when you think you have just read a fantastic part, up comes another one, then there is more and more. The storyline is very unique and is a great one. You will be kept on the edge of your seat as you read all the action, thrills and suspense that is on each and every page. My question is, why would Arthur Croft create that special capsule, sending it into space then commit suicide? Or was it really suicide. The writing is amazing. After reading this you may (as I did), wonder can this someday be in our future. This book is a must read for all. It would make a great addition to anyone’s book shelf. It would also make a perfect gift for anytime of the year, especially for that special person that loves sci-fi. I gave it 5 stars but wished I could give it more because it deserves more. I very highly recommend it all. I have to admit that Koos Verkaik hit it out of the ballpark with this book and Koos, I wait for another great book from you.
What do you hope readers could get out from your book?
First: Just having a good time.
Second: Much to think for those who are able to read between the lines.
What are your future goals/plans for the book?
Working on a screenplay. It is perfect for film. And in the meantime I write new novels and new series of children’s books.
And something more about yourself.
