Rob Wanders is author of poetry albums as well as of Genealogy books.

He wrote three poetry albums: ‘Een Eeuwige Roos’ (published InHoused, 1994), ‘Hé Blauwe Vogel’ (published InHoused, 1999) and ‘Shadow of the Past’ (by publishing house Salmoura, 2015; for sale via, a.o.). In 2012 he combined the two different art forms on the CD: “Words around Midnight.” A number of songs on the CD are preceded by poems written and recited by himself.
