Hi, I’m Ellie Zwanepoel. Children’s Author, Blogger and Freelance Writer.
I’ve been involved in the printing and publishing industry for as long as I can remember and will always be passionate about the written word. The smell of a new book or the inside of a printing factory makes me as happy as the smell of my kids’ hair as they snuggle in for a hug. I’m a firm believer that the physical format of publishing will never die, but I’m also well aware of the importance of online publishing and presence.
Having grown up in England and starting my Publishing career in London, I then moved to Dubai for almost 9 years, fully embracing all that the U.A.E had to offer. After enjoying many years in Print Production Management, I moved on to my new career…Motherhood.
Now residing in Cape Town, South Africa with my husband and two children, I think I’m destined to always be an expat. I love exploring new countries and settling into the local way of life.
Along with my children, I have written and illustrated several children’s books which we have self-published through Amazon. We are very proud of our creations and look forward to writing many more books as well as developing new characters as we too develop through the years.
As well as creating short rhyming children’s stories, I also love writing about the following over at Wine in a Teacup:
- Family & Kids
- Pregnancy & Birth
- DIY & Crafts
- Home & Lifestyle
- Travelling with Kids
- Expat Living
- …and Recruitment (when I put my serious business hat on!)
If you’re looking for someone to write engaging and creative content in a fun and relatable tone, contact me today so we can get to work!
P.S My surname isn’t as intimidating to pronounce as it looks. Just say Swan-a-pool! Easy, hey!

BEGINNERS GUIDE TO POETRY... Until I really got into writing in rhyme and researching blog posts for Zwannie Books, my knowledge of poetry was pretty minimal. I knew about Limericks, Sonnets, Rhymes and I'd stumbled across the Haiku style, but that was...
