Fantasy author Louise Cooper dies


The Bookseller reports on the sudden death of Cornwall-based fantasy author Louise Cooper from a brain haemorrhage at the age of 57. She created the Seahorses and The Mermaids Curse series and wrote more than 80 books.

Her own website describes how she hit the big time…..


My ‘big break’ came in 1984, when my agent of the time persuaded me to expand and re-write my second book, Lord of No Time, into a trilogy – The Time Master. To my delight, and with the boost of three stunning Robert Gould covers, Time Master was a great success on both sides of the Atlantic, and in the next 10 years I wrote and published 15 more fantasy novels, including the Indigo series and a ‘prequel’ and sequel to Time Master.

Fifty seven is no age at all. She appeared to be a person who lived her two dreams – to write books and live in Cornwall. What a pair of fine things to aspire to do.
