About Louise

Louise lives in a small town in the East Midlands,, with her husband, son, dog, cat, and tortoises.

As a writer with dyslexia, Louise has found script writing suits her visual style, as she visualises the scenes as she writes them, making her writing dynamic and her characters consistent in their actions.

Writing mainly fantasy dramas that hold up a mirror to the world around her, Louise really pushes the idea of strong, well-rounded female characters, who stand up to the scrutiny of the world they inhabit.

Currently Louise writes freelance and has many projects live on YouTube.

Projects
• CITY OF CAVES is a serial fantasy drama for services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime, following two female shape-shifting werecats: a tiger and a domestic cat – who, after escaping the patriarchal tyranny of their leaders begin to discover the dark truth of their kinds past, learn that the enemy of their enemy can become their friend, and that to save the world they must decide to forgive the past.
• THE NIGHT LAND based on the Novel by William Hope Hodgson, but taking a new point of view, we follow this story through the eyes of Naani, a young and intelligent woman, as the forces of evil destroy all she loves and she is left wandering the horrors of the night land alone, before her salvation arrives in the form of Apollo, a human from another of the last redoubts.

Unique traits: Horribly dyslexic... in a good way.
