Bonjour! I’m Louisa.

If you love literary memoir, and want to write one of your own, you’ve come to the right place.

For the past twenty years I’ve worked as a magazine journalist, editor, copywriter, authored two memoirs, and a non-fiction e-book on the structure of memoir.

My second memoir, A Letter From Paris is about uncovering my late father’s life in France through a pile of handwritten letters found in a Parisian attic, and my journey across the world to piece it all together.

Written words have the power to cross time and reach our loved ones long after we’ve gone.

This is why I love memoir so much.
