Louise Bassett is an Australian author who writes for young adults and grown-ups. The Girl Between the Pages is her debut novel and was shortlisted for the Ampersand Prize. Her award-winning adult short fiction has been published internationally. Her second and third YA novels are in the works. After emigrating from England on a Greek liner, Louise grew up in Adelaide, 'the weird murder capital of Australia' and a fertile environment for a budding writer. After university, she narrowly dodged a career as a lawyer and worked in international aid in Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Vietnam. While living in Indonesia, she scaled volcanoes and worked with activists who were campaigning to end violence against women. These experiences inspired The Hidden Girl. Louise works in community justice, giving her a deep understanding of the impact of crime and vulnerability; issues she explores in her writing. Based in Melbourne, Louise lives with her partner and too many books. Her stepsons keep her in touch with all things YA.
