About Liesl Schuh

(pronounced “LEE-SUL SHOE”)
Liesl Schuh

Liesl “Darr” Schuh (pronounced LEE-SUL SHOE) is a San Antonio, Texas native, and a mother of three daughters alongside her husband, Stephen. Schuh is a first-time author and former public relations professional. She is a graduate of Texas Tech University, where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations. While attending Texas Tech, Schuh met her husband Stephen and they married in 2013.

While growing up in Texas, Schuh’s upbringing was rooted in faith, family and friendships. She carried these with her into adulthood, where, when faced with challenges, she would lean on those around her. Losing herself along the way, Schuh struggled with addiction, and entered into treatment in Spring 2015. She has since been sober and is in recovery. She remains fully aware that had she not gone through the suffering that she did, the life she has today would not have been possible. Her life experiences serve as a source of support for others struggling.

As her first written and self-published book, The Girl Dad is the celebration of the hope that can come from doing the hard work. 

“From addiction to an author, for me, the future is bright and the blessings are bountiful!” – Liesl Schuh

With all the recent “GIRL DAD” buzz, I’ve been waiting for a book JUST like this! It is a very enjoyable read for ALL ages, and the book perfectly captures the sweet and extra special feelings of being a father to little ladies! Certainly a wonderful read (especially since it rhymes), but this is a MUST-HAVE for your library!

We have two girls and my husband and I constantly get asked why we don’t try for a boy. I love that this book celebrates the whole range of reasons why it’s great to be a girl dad! Obviously makes a great Father’s Day Gift, but I could also see it making a lovely baby shower, new parents, etc. gift! Or just a loving reminder for any girl dads who are still coming around to the idea that their family can be totally complete with all girls!
