World Book Day 2022

The Society of Authors, here in the UK, have a lovely social media initiative for #WorldBookDay2022, called #BehindEveryBook, showing you the faces of the authors behind your favourite books.

If you don’t know me yet, my name is Liezel (as in The Sound of Music), I live in Scotland, and I am completely besotted with words and books, a good cup of tea, and getting lost in the woods—something I seem to have a knack for…getting lost, that is, although I do make good tea!

I have published two full collections of poetry, my first—Stripped, and my second collection—A Counting of Love, and I publish under my own imprint, Quiet Rebel Press.

I am currently working on my third book, which will be a collection of poems and prose poems. All going well publication will be in June or July and I am already deeply in love with the bones of this book, and I can’t wait to send her into the world!

It is surprisingly difficult to take a photo of yourself holding several books, whilst ensuring you and the books are visible, and still looking like you are an accomplished, professional author holding it all together.

Here is my offering instead 😉
