Liz Lofthouse (Author)
Liz Lofthouse was born in Perth, WA, and lived there with her husband and their two daughters. After becoming a primary school teacher, Liz also worked in a volunteer capacity with local refugees. She was inspired to write Ziba Came on a Boat after hearing stories told by people from the Hazara community - refugees from Afghanistan who now live in Perth. Liz passed away from melanoma in 2018.
