Louie Stowell - Author

Louie Stowell is a children’s writer. She writes non-fiction about space, spaceships, history and other true things. She also writes retellings of myths about tricksters and other shadowy figures and stories about pirates and vampires. Louie’s also written a book about how to write books and comics about how to make comics. She draws comics about gods and politicians (not together) and runs workshops and loves science fiction and real science more or less equally, although she remains disappointed about science’s failure to (so far) create flying cars.
