"Why fit in; when you were born to stand out?"

- Dr Seuss-

Louise has a keen interest in sharing stories that feature characters that stand out, are different and who have something to say.
Inspired by stories from her own experiences and within her family, she took up writing to find a way of discussing neurological and physical diversity, and how to explore other sensitive issues within children’s books.
Louise a member of SCBWI, runs the Writers & Illustrators of Zurich Facebook group ( and is looking forward to debuting her first book,

Just Like Me, in 2021.

In her spare time Louise enjoys reading, painting, photography, spending time with her family and her work as a Book Fairy.



Just Like Me


The world is full of people who are a little different in one way or another.

Our uniqueness is what makes us stand out and makes us who we are.

You can't judge someone on something you can see or even on the things you can not see.

We are all special. We are all unique.

We are all 'different; not less'.


A collection of true stories about inspiring people and famous figures from around the world, all with something that makes them physically or neurologically diverse. Reflective of our diverse society, this anthology features figures including Simone Biles, Stephen Hawking, Usain Bolt, Sudha Chandran, Warwick Davies and Temple Grandin.

Available from all UK and Swiss book stores.

It's non fiction but quirky, sensitive, weird, wonderful and sometimes, she can be funny too.
