Biography of Jozua Douglas, author of the children's picture books "Want to Know. All About Cats", "Want to Know. All About Dogs" and more published by Clavis Publishing, New York.
Jozua Douglas (1977) was born in a teeny-weeny house near the banks in the North of the Netherlands. (Some say his distant grandfather was a famous knight who lived in a huge castle in Scotland, and that his English great-grandfather discovered Charlie Chaplin.)
At the age of six, he learned how to write. He bought himself a notebook, made up stories and went on many exciting adventures with pirates, knights, and astronauts. Since then, Jozua has never stopped writing.
There is nothing he enjoys more than writing for children. Jozua: ‘Children are open-minded and have lots of imagination. Their world is magical and mysterious. It’s a big challenge to work in this world.
Now, Jozua Douglas lives and works in Den Dolder, as an independent writer.
