Louise Burfitt-Dons was first introduced to crime writing on meeting Ian Fleming when he visited her birth country of Kuwait in 1960 and befriended her father. Fast forward forty years to her charity Act Against Bullying advising police on the manipulation and cover up tactics of young people, girl gangs and cyber stalkers. The same devices used by political parties, spies and crooks. These form the background to her psychological dramas.
In between she has written non-fiction, dark comedies for the Sydney stage, murder movie scripts including Maternal Secrets filmed in Bermuda and The Ex Next Door set in suburban US .
Her first crime novel (out June 5th 2018) The Missing Activist is the first in a series starring off the wall P I Karen Andersen. The plot was inspired by her experiences as a Parliamentary candidate in the UK General Election of 2015. This mystery thriller has a backdrop of London, where Louise now lives. She is married with two daughters.
