Henriëtte Louw

Henriëtte Louw was born on a farm close to Malmesbury in the Swartland; the middle child of five. Used to compensating, but also to following her own dreams. Teaching children from six- to eight-years-old was a given. Life took her to various schools. From farm schools to big-town schools; from academic bastions to a small, new generation independent institute, Darling College at the West Coast, where she is still teaching. At every school she utilised her love for writing by being involved with projects such as proofreading, newsletters and school newspapers.

In 2008 she enrols at the SA Writer’s College where the well-known writer, Janie Oosthuizen, presented a course in writing children’s books. In 2009 she received an offer to write and translate for an educational project, called Blend Ed. Her stories,From daydreamer to goalie and Mirror, mirror… among others, were accepted for this in Afrikaans, English and Xhosa. Some of her latest work is waiting for acceptance at the publishers. Houtlepels en hansworse, will let its voice be heard for the first time through the audio books of Beta Than Paper.
