Louise Beere gained a first-class degree in Drama & Theatre Arts at Birmingham University before working as a theatre producer in the West End and for the National Theatre, most notably as General Manager for War Horse. After fifteen years in show business, she moved into the charity sector, working with First Story, a literacy charity committed to fostering creativity in young people through creative writing. She has been a member of both the Royal Court and Soho Theatre Young Writers programmes and joined City University’s Novel Studio in 2015, winning that year’s new writing prize. She currently works as a bookseller in the recently renovated 18th Century Piece Hall in Halifax, West Yorkshire, spending her days gazing at books and the wonderful Georgian architecture.
