Louise hasn’t always been a writer, having been a doctor prior to taking up writing in 2010. Her début novel, The Sisters’ Song, was published by Allen and Unwin 2018 and won the 2018 Tina Kane Emergent Writer Award. Prior to publication, the manuscript was shortlisted for the 2014 City of Fremantle—TAG Hungerford Award and awarded a Varuna Residential Fellowship. Louise was the 2019 Scholarship Writer-in-Residence at Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre.
Apart from her family and writing, she enjoys swimming, music, photography and nature. You can learn more about Louise in her first ever blog post.
