Robin de Ruiter has been publishing since the Eighties and is one of the most translated Dutch authors. His books have appeared in over 100 countries. He is well-known internationally, for years, for his exceptional ability to explore. He has an unequalled understanding of geopolitics and an exceptional intellectual library of factual knowledge. His direct international connections and knowledge of languages, he speaks seven foreign languages fluently, give him access to an unprecedented number of informational sources.
De Ruiter writes all of his books in Spanish. His publications are especially exceptional because they demonstrate a clear and unprejudiced vision. Books that show such extraordinary factual knowledge, insight, and coherence, have become almost inconceivable in many countries.
De Ruiter was born in Enschede (Netherlands) on March 6, 1951, where he spent most of his adolescence. As a young boy he relocated with his parents to Spain, where he studied (among other things) theology, history and Spanish, graduating in 1974 and 1975. Presently he leads a secluded life in Ecuador.
De Ruiter started his career as a freelance writer for Spanish magazines in the field of politics and religion. As a result of these publications, he made a name for himself both in Latin America and Europe. His book The Hidden Power behind the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 gained him even greater success and exposure to a worldwide audience. In the Netherlands the book was awarded the 2005 annual Frontier Award.
