Louise Mumford was born and lives in South Wales. She studied English Literature at university and was an English teacher for fifteen years.
In the summer of 2019 Louise was discovered by her publisher at the Primadonna Festival. Everything has been a bit of a whirlwind since then.
Louise spends her time trying to get down on paper all the marvellous and frightening things that happen in her head. Her debut book, Sleepless, a “frighteningly inventive” speculative thriller inspired by her own experience of insomnia, was published by HQ Digital in December 2020. It has recently been optioned for television.
