Louise Worthington writes psychological fiction from light to dark in mood. She has a passion for exploring the complexity and darker side of the human heart. Her tales are imbued with strong emotional themes and atmospheric settings from poisonous gardens, medieval dungeons to an isolated property by the sea. After gaining a degree in literature, she taught English in secondary schools for many years and studied psychology. More recently she runs a farm with her husband in Shropshire.
She is the author of six novels, including Rachel’s Garden and The Entrepreneur. Kirkus Review described her debut novel Distorted Days as ‘a formidable work that defies narrative orthodoxy.’ Her flash fiction, poetry and short stories have been widely published in literary magazines in the UK and US, brought together with new stories in the collection Stained Glass Lives.
