In 2011 Rovers was asked by the Werkgroep Biografie Boudewijn Büch - consisting of journalist Frits Barend, photographer Klaas Koppe and director of the Biography Institute Hans Renders - to write Boudewijn Büch's biography. For this purpose she was given access to Büch's archives by Büch's heirs.
In 2014 the book ‘Rond de wereld in 160 eilanden’ was published, in which Rovers had collected island stories by Büch. To write the biography, the author received a stipend from the Dutch Foundation for Literature and the Stichting Harten Fonds. At the end of 2014 Büch's biography project received extra financial support through crowdfunding.
In June 2016, the author announced on Twitter that the writing process had been completed. The book with the title ‘Boud’. Het verzameld leven van Boudewijn Büch’ was published in November 2016 and in 2018 the book was nominated for the Dutch Biography Prize.
