Louise Charles is an accomplished author and has had stories and articles published in print and online.
Louise moved to rural Italy in 2007 to live ‘the good life’. She founded the online writing group for expats, Writers Abroad, which has contributed to and published four anthologies, comprising short stories, essays and poetry, the profits of which are donated to book charities.
She is surrounded by her myriad characters from a rich genre who infiltrate her thoughts at all times of the night and day. Also keeping her company is her soul mate, Simon and their family of rescued pets, including: dogs, cats, kittens and chickens. She is a terminal people watcher on the rare occasions that she ventures from her desk.
