Born in Cheshire, England, Louise studied literature at the University of Essex and taught English in secondary schools. As a teenager she read until the small hours, enjoying the darker worlds conjured by Stephen King and Daphne du Maurier. A later interest in psychology led to studying it and writing psychological women’s fiction.

Louise’s first novel, Distorted Days, was  described by Kirkus Review as ‘a formidable work’. Rachel’s Garden, a gripping psychological thriller, is an Amazon best-seller. A sample chapter can be found HERE. In her writing, she combines a chilling blend of the lyrical and the dark in thrillers and chillers around the themes of mothers and children, strong women in difficult situations and family. 

You can purchase her books and audiobooks HERE.

When Louise isn’t reading or writing, you’ll most likely find her outside enjoying the Shropshire countryside with her husband, daughter, furry and feathered friends. Once a keen long-distance runner, she now hobbles through the local wood most days where much of her inspiration and ideas come from.
