Louise Make is thirty, Xhosa and Capetonian by birth. She comes from a family of strong women. Her mother taught her the meaning of relentless tenacity wrapped in humility and compassion. Her father got her hooked on reading when she was young. She now needs reading like she needs air to breathe.
Louise spent most of her life in Cape Town and studied Theatre and Performance at UCT. She then moved to Joburg where she worked in sales, marketing and finally production positions at magazine publishing companies. After the births of her two sons, she slowed down a little and now works on a freelance basis, while focusing on her family, her writing, and her home in the friendly West Rand.
