Louise Wilson also writes fiction as Louisa Valentine, mainly for Babyboomers and Gen Xers. Louisa's first full-length fictional novel 'Retreat into Paradise' is coming soon. It's an Australian rural romance.
Meanwhile, as an experiment, 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'. A more experienced novelist won the competition but it was fun to try and the judges commented on the high standard of entries.
