"I wrote it to honor my husband, being the girl dad he is, and to capture the memories made with our girls. A great gift for a dad of all girls, one girl, or a daughter to her father. I hope everyone enjoys reading the book as much as I did writing it!"

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 author, for Liesl, the future is bright and the blessings are bountiful.

The Girl Dad is Schuh’s first foray into writing and publishing children’s books, and she plans to continue writing a series in this genre in the future. The Girl Dad is inspired by Schuh’s own relationship with her father, as well as inspired by her husband’s relationship with their three young daughters.
