Louisa’s lifelong interest in languages, cultures, history and social justice is reflected in the stories she tells.

Raised in New Jersey, Louisa also lived in Japan for four years, first as an undergraduate and then while completing her Ph.D. in cultural anthropology at Columbia University in New York.

She now lives with her husband in Vancouver, Canada, and recently left university teaching to spend more time writing young adult fiction.
