Louisa Leaman is a writer. She was born, raised and lives in Epping Forest near London. She writes contemporary romantic fiction, but has also written a number of children’s books and teaching guides, as well as writing content for the Victoria and Albert Museum, the world’s leading museum of art and design. She studied Art History at Leeds University, became a teacher working with children with special needs, then turned to writing after winning the Times Education Supplement’s new writer’s award. Her interest in the arts is often inspiration for her plots. When she isn’t busy writing or rearing three lively children, she paints portraits, takes long walks and spends far too long browsing in vintage clothing shops.
