Lizzie Sherwood-Smith is a freelance copywriter, mother of three and part-time bar lizard currently living in Barbados. Her sunny, funny cartoons are based on her life in the Caribbean.

Lizzie loves lizards. And cats. Which is conflicting. When she is not busy chasing her three children round Barbados, Lizzie can often be found rescuing brave little lizards from the bored paws of her pets.

What’s so amazing about lizards?

  • They eat evil, disease-spreading, crazy-making mosquitos
  • They play dead when under attack by cats
  • They are insanely brave and will bite you even though you are 1,000 times their size (and trying to rescue them from aforesaid cats)
  • They can self-amputate their tails at will and can continue to twitch them to distract their predators! Then regrow them!
  • One special species Kentropyx borckiana can self-clone, conveniently doing away with the whole need for any males in the species. Pretty clever but, sadly, these sassy, super-sized, slow-moving females are not even slightly afraid of cats.

Most of Lizzie’s colourful Caribbean cartoons are available online here, or from her directly in Barbados.
