Hi, I’m Louisa, and I’m obsessed with helping individuals bring their unique stories onto the page!
After working as a freelance journalist and editor, writing other people’s stories, I published my first memoir in 2010: Love & Other U-Turns.
Writing (and publishing) my first book was no mean feat and it took me A LOT of trial, error and rejections to figure out what to do. When the idea for my second memoir came about, thankfully I’d learnt so much about publishing that I was able to pitch, sell and draft my second book within months, rather than years.
This is why I’m so passionate about teaching others how to bring their true stories to light in a way that is simple. Our stories are precious and need to come out onto the page. I’ve been teaching non-fiction writing and publishing for over a decade now and I’m determined to lift back the veil on what it really takes to get your stories written, finished and sold in the traditional publishing industry.
