On Tour: November 11 – January 31
Annelies George is the author of the Jessie Golden Earth Series. In this fiction saga she aims to pass a strong message among other topics about the current situation in the world and the connection with the increasing climate changes. When writing the second book in the series, Darkness and Light, she started to reflect on something that she wrote. This led to the Loveable Light initiative. On her Facebook Page she started to post videos and thoughts about things that matter to her (www.facebook.com/anneliesgeorgeauthor). On a July Sunday morning she got the idea to bundle those in a small booklet and to add other thoughts that she has not yet posted illustrated with pictures that are partly a result of the photo shoots she does on a regular basis to support her activities with Vincent Kos, a Dutch photographer. The remainder is a random collection of pictures she made herself.
She believes that our personality is the result of our education, our free will and our own choices, as well as the love we discover in our own heart. Therefore, she dedicated this booklet to her parents, who always loved and supported her, even if her lifestyle wasn’t exactly what they had in mind.
Annelies George was born on 4 August, 1964 in Bussum, After the gymnasium, she followed a one-year course as an international secretary in Amsterdam. Immediately afterward she started to work for a law firm, studying finance, management and law during the evening hours with the goal of becoming a lawyer herself. A move to a different town brought her into the fast IT world, where she was employed by GE Capital, marking the start of a successful career in the international IT Finance world. Due to the intensity of the job and long working hours, she abandoned her plans for a law degree. At the age of 30, she was appointed to Benelux managing director of a US based lease company, a rare phenomenon at the time, since few women were holding similar positions in the specific branch in the Netherlands. Thereafter she accepted a variety of EMEA and regional management and sales roles with Cisco, Microsoft, and Hewlett Packard. Annelies still lives in Bussum and is taking care of her 83-year-old mother. She loves, among other activities, to paint and design necklaces when she is not writing. On occasion she likes to travel to discover new places and understand the different ways of living around the globe.
