Louise Gooding

After years working in children's entertainment, Louise Gooding channeled her creativity into writing. Louise has a strong 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 those of 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 is also a member of SCBWI, an Inclusive Minds ambassador and leads The Writers and Illustrators of Zurich. In her spare time Louise enjoys reading, painting, photography, spending time with her family and her work as a Book Fairy.
