Hello and welcome to the website of Louise Allan — mother, doctor, and, more recently, writer. I am currently writing my first novel, which has the working title ‘Ida’s Children’. It is the story of two sisters, one who is childless and must watch on as the other bears child after unwanted child. Both are forced to give up their dreams. You can read an excerpt here.
2013 has been an exciting year: I have been awarded a Varuna Residential Fellowship for 2014 to continue work on my novel, and two of my stories, ‘Metaplasia’ and ‘Neil and Dad and Me’, have been published in the anthology ‘Jukebox’ (Out of the Asylum Writers’ Group, November 2013).
I would love to interact with you, the reader, so please leave comments to let me know you’ve been. I look forward to meeting you.
Thanks for visiting.
