Kroniek van een Dakhebber (Straatnieuws #13, Winter 2007)
Wilma van den Bosch was born in Welland, Canada, as the daughter of Dutch immigrants. However, when Wilma was ten years old, the family moved back to Holland. She got interested in comics after reading an interview with Morris in newspaper De Volkskrant. She wrote a story and tried to sell it to different publishers. Soon afterwards, she was asked by Ed van Schuijlenburg, art supervisor of the Dutch Disney magazines, to write scenarios with Disney characters for Donald Duck weekly.
After a couple of years writing stories, Wilma also took on drawing. Since then, she has worked as a staff artist for the Dutch Disney magazines Donald Duck, Katrien and Disneyland. In 1999 she created her own comic, 'Prinses Aster'. Two long stories with the character were published in Donald Duck, and in albums by Sanoma and Silvester. In 2002, she received the Stripschapspenning in the category Best Dutch Children's Comic for 'Prinses Aster'.
