My name is Louise, and I write YA books. Sometimes contemp, sometimes horror, sometimes thriller. My debut YA contemp, Under Rose-Tainted Skies, will be published by HMH/Clarion (US), and Chicken House/Scholastic (UK) in the fall 2016/17.

Under Rose-Tainted Skies is about this chick, Norah, who suffers from agoraphobia, OCD and depression. Her life is one long blur of cheese sandwiches and trash tv, until she meets the new boy next door, Luke, and he starts to challenge her way of thinking.

I’m represented by the amazing Mandy Hubbard of Emerald City Literary.

    Hi Louise! I just finished reading “Under Rose-Tainted Skies”–I could NOT put it down and looked forward to my subway rides to and from work so I could keep going. Wow, what a powerful and well-written book that was. I’m a Librarian and although I mainly deal with our adult patrons, I also like to keep current on YA literature. I must have read a review of your book and requested a copy.

    You did an excellent job of helping others understand from the inside out what it feels like to suffer from OCD and Agoraphobia. I suffer from panic attacks and I’m well aware that people who aren’t me just don’t get it, that you can’t just “control” the wave of feelings and physical symptoms that pour over you when it’s happening.

    So well done and keep writing. And I must say that you are one of the rare individuals who actually looks good with blue hair (I’m not usually a fan!). It complements your eyes.
