Louise Wilson also writes women's fiction as Louisa Valentine, mainly for Babyboomers and Gen Xers. Louisa's first full-length fictional novel 'Retreat into Paradise' is now available as an Ebook.
In 2019 she entered a short story competition for historic novelists by converting a factual story from her own Flockton family history into her first attempt at creative non-fiction. The story length could not exceed 3,000 words. Given today's attitudes, 'Ahead of His Time' might have been a good title for this story but in the end the focus was romance, with 'Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes'.

More online feedback, please!
'Retreat into Paradise' was offered as a 'freebie' over the Christmas 2019 holiday period, as a holiday read. It was a thrill to see the book reach #3 on Amazon's rankings in its 'Western' category, where Australian rural romances are classified.
A second novel is coming - set in Sydney.
