Annette van den Bosch was born a child in the sign of Capricorn during the night of 22nd March 1956 in the Lieve Vrouwengasthuis in Zaltbommel. This hospice has, sadly enough, closed down, for it is still a beautiful building, in- as well as outside. Her parents had moored off for the delivery, because her father was an inland shipping captain. Annette works and lives in Zeist near the woods, together with her husband Hans. She writes poetry primarily for the internet and can be found on sites such as Meander (of which she is an editor, and analyses poems for), Dichtersweb, Schrijfnet, Poetry Alive!, dichtboard and Schrijverspodium.
