with nothing but our lives tells the story of a precocious young boy in concentration camps for Dutch women and children on Java under the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) during WWII.

I planned to have with nothing but our lives finished by August 15 2015, the 70th anniversary of the unconditional surrender of Japan. It was a reasonable goal and I should have made that symbolic deadline; worse, I have not touched the book since October 2015. I apologize to all of you who have been following my progress so faithfully and want you to know that I have updated my web site in July 2018 and have started writing again.
