Dedicated to children's and YA authors

Lou Carter grew up in Kent and spent most of her childhood playing music.


After studying medicine for three years she took a PGCE in primary education. Her work as a school teacher sparked her love of children’s picture books and

funny fiction.


She now lives in Cambridge with her husband and two children.

Lou loves to write in rhyme, and eat white chocolate mice.


Bloomsbury will publish There Are No Dragons in This Story and two further picture books by Lou, while Orchard Books will publish Pirate Stew.
