Liza Seele is a children's book author and poet, working and living on a timber farm near Baynesfield, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Once an engineer and now an imagineer, loves to inspire kids and adults alike to find light and laughter in both the small and big things that life throws our way. In between ferrying a bazillion kids around as Mom’s Taxi, Liza started churning out poems for her kids’ school for almost every occasion. Popular demand and playful performances led her to properly pursuing her passion for writing and inspiring hopeful delight wherever she goes. She is a mum of three fabulous kids, Hannah, Lucie and Liam. She is married to Ben, and they live on a timber farm near Baynesfield, KwaZulu-Natal.
Liza launched her debut children's book of hilarious poetry, Potjie Pot Poems, in January 2021.
