Louise Fein was born and brought up near London. After a law degree at Southampton University, she worked in Hong Kong and Australia, and enjoyed travelling the world before returning to London to settle down to a career in law and banking. She holds a master’s degree in creative writing from St Mary’s University, London. Louise lives in the beautiful Surrey countryside with her husband, three children and is a slave to her pets.
Her debut novel, People Like Us (US title, Daughter of the Reich), was inspired by her family history and the alarming parallels she saw between the 1930s and today. The Hidden Child is her second novel.
