H.I. Larry, Mac Park, Poppy Rose
Welcome to the official site of best selling children's author and publisher, Louise Park. I write under my own name as well as three pseudonyms.
As an author, I spend my days battling beasts, finding those secret doors, portals and hidden tunnels to magical lands, pretending to be the world’s best ballerina, and solving Harriet Clare's MEGA-HUGE and terribly troublesome dramas!
Who knows what I'll be spending my time doing tomorrow? The best part about being a children’s book creator and writer is that every day is a new and excitingly grand adventure!

'Fun, Humour, Creativity, Drama, Inspiration!! These are just a few descriptors used by our students and staff regarding Louise Park’s recent ‘Book Week Author Visit’ for our Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 students. Louise captivated our students’ imaginations and challenged their thoughts on the writing process itself. She encouraged them to ‘think outside the box’ and to take risks to develop their own imaginative, humorous and highly entertaining characters and storylines as well as introducing them to the characters and storylines in her own books! Louise immediately involves the students in her presentations by encouraging them to be an active part of her performance. Our students were totally captivated when she appeared as T-Rex in her Dinosaur ‘D-Bot Squad” suit! They were exhilarated by her performance and the presentation itself! Louise has encouraged our students to continue our school’s ‘Love of Literacy!’ and we loved every minute she spent with us in the school. Not only a highly talented and creative writer but an amazingly motivating person. We can’t wait for her next visit!'
