Louie Stowell has a long-established career in publishing having worked for Usborne books as an editor and in-house writer, and for Ladybird Books. She is now a full-time writer with an expanding list of titles.

In this interview, she talks to Nikki Gamble about Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good and her fascination with Norse mythology.


About Loki
A wry, witty and very funny diary-style story packed with doodles and comic strips about the frustration trickster god Loki feels at having to live trapped in the body of a weedy eleven-year-old boy. After one trick too many, Loki is banished to live on Earth as a “normal” schoolboy. Forbidden from using his AWESOME godly powers, Loki must show moral improvement.

As he records his lies THE TRUTH in his magical (judgemental) diary, it becomes clear Loki hasn’t a clue how to tell good from evil, trust from tricks, or friends from enemies.
