Born in 1973 in Cheshire, England, Louise studied literature at Essex University and qualified to teach English in secondary schools. As well as taking inspiration from her home counties of Shropshire and Cheshire, her postgraduate studies in psychology influence her writing. She lives with her husband and daughter on a farm near Shrewsbury in Shropshire - the most haunted county in England.


Louise explored Peckforton Woods and the Sandstone Trail in Cheshire as a child. The woods, in particular, are close to her heart and a central setting and source of atmosphere in Rachel's Garden. Just over the border in Shropshire, Shrewsbury Prison inspired Rosie Shadow, Moreton Corbet Castle influenced the Gothic suspense, Willow Weeps and Shrewsbury Library inspired her debut novella, Distorted Days.

Her publications span various genres, from psychological thrillers and speculative fiction to literary fiction and dark poetry. Her poetry and short stories have been widely published in the UK and US.
