Diamond Kahn & Woods Literary Agency

With a BA (hons) in Performance Writing, and an MA in Children’s Literature, Louise loves stories. She loves writing them, talking about them and curling up under the quilt with them.  That moment when a story makes you curl and break with love for it? She likes that moment.

If she could have gone to any school in the world, it would have been the Chalet School. If she could have written any book, it would have been Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Her favourite Pokemon is Pikachu (Charmander’s a close second) and she’d like to be best friends with Gert from the Runaways comics by Brian K Vaughan.

She wrote a dissertation on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (favourite character: Faith), another dissertation on gifted and talented characters in children’s literature (anything to talk about Lorna Hill and Elinor M. Brent-Dyer), and thinks Dazzler from the X-Men is misunderstood. She also makes excellent chocolate brownies.

She thinks children’s literature can, does and will change the world. She’d like to be there when it does.
