Louise Blackwick is a next-generation fiction writer, author of surreal short stories, metaphysical manifestos and narrative poems.
Blackwick primarily considers herself a "fantasy novelist", though the erudite complexity of her work has been appraised to exceed the genre of fantasy. The first novel in a series of five was released in 2016-2017 and was received with critical acclaim by a score of metacritics, most of whom have compared her narrative style with C. Paolini, J.K. Rowling and E.R. Eddison.
For short fiction, Blackwick claims her greatest influences were the father of surrealism André Breton, the twisted storyteller Edgar A.Poe and the existentialist Kafka. At times, she unweaves the general conventions of space and of time, bending them at odd angles into a mesmerizing and surreal dream construct.
For epic large-scale fiction, Blackwick greatly looks up to the legendary Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.
Louise Blackwick is particularly known as the writer of the Vivian Amberville book series, a fantasy saga that follows the epic adventures of a teenage girl and her dangerous "reality-warping" powers.
