About Louise Burfitt-Dons

I was born in the Sheikdom of Kuwait when it was still a British Protectorate. Today I live in Chiswick, London with my husband Donald. There have been plenty of other places in between!

Our two daughters Brooke and Arabella are now grown up.

I am an author and playwright. For details of books, blogs, plays, script writing and current projects go HERE.

I founded the children’s charity Act Against Bullying, co-founded Kindness Day UK, stood for Parliament in the 2015 General Election and blog on women’s issues which is why I pop up from time to time on the radio or TV talking about current affairs.
