Louie Stowell was born in London and has lived there ever since, except for a short stint in Watford to study advertising. She’s worked as a copywriter, cartoonist, PR and in-house non-fiction writer. She’s now Editorial Director at Ladybird.
Her debut, THE DRAGON IN THE LIBRARY, was published by Nosy Crow in 2019 and is forthcoming from Walker Books US, followed by THE MONSTER IN THE LAKE in January 2020. The third Dragon in the Library book is coming later in 2020, with a standalone middle-grade novel following in 2021 with Nosy Crow. She’s currently working on a top-secret project involving gods and giants.
Louie grew up on a diet of Tolkien, Doctor Who, Ursula Le Guin, live action role play, Just William, 2000AD, Elfquest, John Christopher and Nicholas Fisk. She loves comics, science fiction, fantasy and anything funny. At university, she wrote her thesis on comics, and once won a prize for Anglo-Saxon. She likes woods, urban foxes and mythology.
Louie lives in Hackney with her wife, Karen, her dog, Buffy, and a nameless creepy puppet that is probably cursed.
