Skip Van Lenten: Personal Essays

Content Page


Most of my stories are about growing up in New Jersey in the 50's and 60's, when Bergen County could still be considered a rural area, but I've also written about significant moments in my life beyond those years in stories such as "Welcome Home,” "The Parade," and "A Dog Story." I will be adding more, but in the meantime, if you enjoy what you read here, please feel free to pass them on.

About Me


The stories published here were written over several years, and occasionally  posted on my Facebook page (social links are below).  Most of them are about growing up in New Jersey in the 50's, when Bergen County could still be considered a rural area across the river from New York City. It was a different time and a different feeling, and I hope I have been able to convey what it was like through these stories and personal essays. 

Since retiring in 2014, I have also devoted a lot of my time to painting. I am fortunate to be able to spend a good portion of my summers in the Adirondacks where there are endless opportunities to paint outdoors and enjoy the beautiful countryside at the same time.
