Bonjour! I’m Louisa.

For the past twenty years I’ve worked as a journalist, editor, copywriter, and authored two memoirs.

What I loved most about journalism was meeting people at the peak of their expertise. Being published so widely meant sharing their stories with so many people across the world.

After finishing my second memoir, A Letter From Paris, I’ve shifted my focus to working with individuals to plan, craft and finish their books. My specialty is non-fiction and memoir.

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 a memoir. Words can cross time and reach loved ones decades after we’ve gone. How wonderful is that?

In the end, all we get to leave behind is our story.

Let’s make it a beautiful one!

Louisa

A Letter from Paris…

What would you do if someone you thought you’d lost forever,
sent you a message from Paris…?
