Wednesday, April 10th Louise G. Wert had her book launch at Library Allard at 6:30 pm. Louise started off explaining her journey and how she began to write. Growing up she had to leave school before its’ completion to assist her family after family deaths. Louise didn’t have time to write, let alone read growing up. With her first language being French writing a book in English is a feat in and of itself.
Upon a long road trip, Louise found herself looking for something to amuse herself with and picked up a second hand romance novel to read. It drew her in and then she became flooded with ideas on books of her own. She dubbed herself “a hopeless romantic” and that is where she concentrates her efforts. Her book, “Can You See Me?” the first of 5 in a series titled “Lords and Friends” had an excerpt read by her sister, Jo-Anne Marin. Her book is a historical romance that takes place in France.
Louise received great support from the community with 31 people in attendance at her book launch.
