Lady Elizabeth Haslam, my appreciation of life.

Why I write poetry? When first asked why I write poetry, I wasn’t sure how to respond, but it soon became clear to me. In one word: passion. Anything that grips me and I feel strongly about.

About Lady Elizabeth Haslam



Elizabeth Haslam has spent much of her life in the caring industries.

A State Registered Nurse, having worked also in industry.

Elizabeth founded The Michael Sieff Foundation a child protection charity in 1987 following the death of her husband Michael Sieff a profound believer in ethics and the intrinsic strength of the human spirit, his love of people and children knew no bounds.

After the death of her second husband Elizabeth decided to be based in Cyprus.

The Boy Who Wouldn’t was born in 2017, when it seemed there was much to be depressed about; predominantly wars and the plight of displaced people.

To cheer herself up The Boy Who Wouldn’t Stop Smiling was written.

Then just observing her grandsons and their friends were and remain a constant sauce of joy and inspiration.

Whilst in Cyprus, to her surprise and enormous pleasure she formulated and co-presented live, a current affairs programme.

Now she continues writing for children, more adventures of The Boy Who Wouldn’t and adventures of The Magic Mini and The Elf Tree which she hopes to publish in the near future.
