Bonjour! I’m Louisa.
For the past twenty years I’ve worked as a magazine journalist, editor, copywriter, and authored two memoirs.
I recently discovered my late father’s hand-typed French memoir in a Melbourne library. His tales of living in post-war France explained my life-long fascination with all things French, and convinced me even more about the value and power of writing. Words can cross time and reach loved ones decades after we’ve gone. How wonderful is that?
After finishing my second memoir, A Letter From Paris, I’ve started coaching others on writing, editing and the path to publication. I also created an online course to teach what i’ve learnt in the last twenty years of writing memoir and non-fiction.
In the end, all we get to leave behind is our story.
Let’s make it a beautiful one!
A Letter from Paris…
What would you do if someone you thought you’d lost forever,
sent you a message from Paris…?
