Rima Orie

Rima Orie (1994) lives in The Hague in the Netherlands. She might have been inspired by the location of the International Court of Justice in her town to start her job at the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security. The values of fairness and justice are also reflected in Orie’s highly inclusive and diverse young adult stories. In 2018, she won the YA writing contest of the Dutch publisher Moon with her fairytale fantasy THE ROGUE PRINCE, set in a world based on ancient India. It won the hearts of the jury and many readers alike, and has been nominated for several awards. Her second book, IN THE CURSED HEART, is a dark fantasy set in a world like colonial Suriname, and will be published in 2021.
