Louisa Thomsen Brits was born in Uganda to a Danish mother and an English father. Now living in East Sussex, she is a mother to four, an amateur naturalist and a wild swimmer. She has been a radio restaurant and arts critic and a tribal bellydance teacher. Louisa is interested in the overlooked details of ordinary lives, liminal places, community and craft. She writes about the art of living, the nature of things, our common life and the rhythms and rituals that unite and define us all.

Her first book The Book of Hygge was published in 2016 in the UK with Ebury and in 2017 in the US with Plume. It has been translated into 11 languages.
