A few months ago Louise and Suzi met up in a covid friendly way at Louise's lovely home in the mountains to discuss her life as a new author. Louise has written and published her book Just Like Me which discusses the topics of neurodiversity and disability. Joining forces with 4 talented illustrators, Louise has managed to bring a book to the shelves on topics that are often shied away from, ignored or forgotten. As Louise has a neurodiverse family, she is keen to increase the visibility of disabled and neurologically different people through her children's book.
Louise also discusses her life before being an author and her move to Switzerland, and how she made the decision to stay.
Louise isnt the only Gooding to have written a book - daughter Ellie joined us briefly in the interview (although silently!) so we could discuss her book! Ellie wrote and published Georgie Moves to Switzerland which is a must read for all kids who have made the journey here, or plan to in the future.
To get copies of Louise's book, you can pre order from Swiss book shops directly such as Orell Füssli, Buchhaus, Press & Books as well as Book Depository. Here is just one link for the book, but you can choose where you order from!
This book is sure to make it around the world, so make sure you get your hands on one of the first copies available!
