Wies Enthoven is a writer, journalist and teacher. She studied psycholinguistics and already started to teach and write when still in college. After a decade of writing for Dutch newspapers and magazines she became seriously ill. When she had sufficiently recovered, she wrote a book in her native Dutch Bange Helden about her nine years of being determined to find a way to get better. She regained her position as a journalist and recently started a new company in Amsterdam, Harttaal or Hearttalk in English to house her work as a writing coach and teacher. Her focus is always on the narrative people tell her. How do they look at themselves? What is their life story? Being an eldest daughter she discovered how much women in this birth position have in common.
