Johanna van Zanten


A member of the boomer cohort, I am intrigued by how this generation deals with aging, gracefully, or not so gracefully and whether we may have passed on our virtues and vices to our children. Raised and educated in the Netherlands during the post war (WWII) years, I immigrated to Canada in my early thirties to join a Canadian man and spent some time in central and Northern Alberta during my first ten years in Canada. Via marriage, with a child, various jobs in First Nations communities, a move to beautiful British Columbia, a divorce and a return to university, followed by a job in child protection, I reached the point of life in which fictional creation using my experiences seemed unavoidable, hence my presence on this site.
