Howard Pyle, and any story-teller with a streak of humor.

Lou Cook grew up on a small farm in Connecticut and has lived on both coasts of the United States.

The most beautiful building in her hometown was the library. She would search the old wooden shelves, and check out the unread treasures from Mrs. Hoadley, the librarian.

These days, when not writing about Bunzini’s world, Lou is a deckhand on the ferries of the San Francisco Bay.

It is invaluable to have someone to talk with about your ideas and your words. Also you will need at least one person to find the typos!(less)

Roxane Gay
I live in the middle of nowhere, I don't have children, I'm an insomniac, I love writing, I'm motivated, writing is often self-medication.
