Lou Harper has loved drawing since she can remember. As a child, she would stay quiet for hours in the company of paper and colored pencils—to the delight of her mother. Eventually, Lou had to admit that her aptitude didn't equal her enthusiasm, and she threw herself into photography and then into digital image manipulation.
Lou started wrangling pixels back in the days when floppy disks ruled the world, and for many years made her living creating a wide range of content for web and mobile. She started designing book covers the same time she started writing.
