We shared the joy of Louise living in the beautiful bush overlooking the dam and gardens, just outside Perth.

She loved their muscovy duck BALDRICK.

She loved writing and the Australian bush.

Author of 10 books including ‘Secrets of the Tingle Forest’ which won the WA Young Readers Book Award.

Remembering Louise Schofield

West Australian SCBWI member Louise Schofield has died after a long battle with cancer. A former senior journalist with The Australian, Louise was the author of ten books including The Zoo Room and Secrets in the Tingle Forest, which won the Western Australian Young Readers Book Award and was shortlisted for a Wilderness Society Award for Children’s Literature.

Louise has given generously to SCBWI and was a talented and dedicated member of the West Australian writing community.

In the early years of SCBWI WA, Louise worked tirelessly behind the scenes to help make the 2008 WA Conference a huge success. She helped plan the first Rottnest Retreat and, as much as her declining health allowed, contributed to the smooth running of subsequent SCBWI events and generously helped new members.

Louise wrote an article about the WA Books Moove Me cow, which was published around the world via the international SCBWI Bulletin.

She was also the founder of the Mundaring HeARTlines Festival – a month-long celebration of children’s literature and book illustration.

Fremantle Press Children’s Publisher Cate Sutherland said,
“Louise was an inspiring author who will be remembered for her commitment to the arts. Her generosity in promoting the work of her peers – the authors and children’s book writers of Western Australia – will not be forgotten.”

Thankyou Fremantle Press WA for these words about my friend, colleague and fellow travellor on the journey of cancer.
