About Lou Cook
Lou grew up on a small farm in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, and has lived on both coasts of the United States. This has allowed many enjoyable car trips back and forth across this country. These days, when not creating Bunzini’s world, Lou works as a deckhand on the ferries of the beautiful, ever-changing San Francisco Bay.
What was the first book you fell in love with? Lou discovered her first love at The Hickory Stick Bookshop, which is still doing business in her hometown, Washington Depot, CT. It was love at first sight. Her name: Cinderella. Lou followed her mother 'round and 'round the store. She promised so hard that she would to learn to read, if only she could please, please take Cinderella home.
Her plan worked. She still has that book, although the cover somehow came off at the hands of her younger brothers or sister.
In her hometown, the most beautiful building was the library, as it should be. She loved to browse the old wooden shelves to discover the many unread treasures, checking out a big stack from Mrs. Hoadley, the librarian. When Lou is not writing, she loves nothing more than settling down for a good read.
