LOUISE WENER

 

Louise is currently working on a new TV project for Hat Trick Productions’ joint venture with Jed Mercurio. Her feature script HUSK is in development with Spaceage Films and she previously co-wrote the drama series Queens of Noise for BBC Radio 4.

Louise began her writing career as lyricist for the 90s Britpop band, Sleeper. This mostly involved scribbling words on beer mats at the back of a tour bus.

Three albums and ten top forty singles later, Sleeper split and Louise embarked on a new career as a novelist. She has since published five books, including The Big Blind and Goodnight Steve McQueen.

Her memoir, Different for Girls, recounts her awkward 80s childhood and subsequent rise to the dizzying heights of fame: playing to thousands of fans and living the high life of glitter, drugs, debauchery and being interviewed on breakfast TV by glove puppets.
