Contact: René Dewil


This website was composed by René Jean-Paul Dewil .

René Dewil was born in Belgium, in the Flanders region, in the Province of Flemish Brabant. He has been living in Wallony since tens of years, however. His mother tongue was Dutch, but he speaks French at home with his wife Monique and with his two sons Maxence and Julian. He also speaks and reads English and German. He writes in English, but he also translates and reworks his novels in Dutch.

René has University degrees from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, degrees in engineering and mathematics. These are degrees called in Belgium 'Civil Engineer in Electro-Mechanics' and 'Civil Engineer in Applied Mathematics', which would currently be called in after-Bologna language as 'Master's Degrees'.
His professional career has been in Information Technology (IT), and mainly in IT Infrastructure Strategy.

His hobby interests have always been in the history of Western Europe and in the art of painting. He visited practically all the museums mentioned in the 'List of References' and has seen most of the originals of the paintings he writes about - with very rare exceptions.
