Louise Cooper (1952-2009) wrote fantasies. She’d completed two novels by the time she left school (she called them “embarrassingly bad”) and published her first novel, The Book of Paradox, when she was 20. Six more novels followed, and she had her big break when, at her agent’s suggestion, she re-wrote her book Lord of No Time and turned it into the Time Master trilogy. Many more fantasy novels followed, including her Sea Horses quartet, which features an evil spirit horse.
