Bonjour! I’m Louisa.

If you love non-fiction (like me!) and dream of writing and publishing a book, you’ve come to the right place.

For the past twenty years I’ve worked as a journalist, editor, copywriter, authored two memoirs, a course, and an 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. I’m now working on publishing his memoir of life in France in the 1950’s, found hidden in a vault at the State Library Victoria.

If you’d like to learn how to write a memoir, I share loads of tips and tricks in my weekly blogs. Or maybe you’d like to work 1:1? I offer coaching, editing, manuscript feedback and courses here.
