Josephine Van Den Berg is from the Netherlands and emigrated with her husband and three young children to New Zealand in 1990. She has been working with children for over 28 years and loves story telling.
While weaving facts with fantasy, she always tries to convey the thoughts, understandings and responses of children, into the tale - which often come as a surprise. Usually her stories address various social and cultural issues today’s youth has to deal with - in a positive and engaging way.
All her stories have plots that unfold in an unconventional and surprising way.
