Louise Hathaway is a pen name of a husband and wife writing team. They write in several different genres including murder/ mystery; romance, travel, time travel, and literary criticism.
Here is an excerpt from a Smashwords' interview of the married writers:
We see that you are a husband and wife writing team. When did you decide that you wanted to write books together?
The Wife: For years, I'd been trying to get published on my own. I have a M.A. in English and spent my twenties at the post office mailing my short stories to various publishers with no success. About 3 years ago, on a lark, I began writing a murder/mystery about a group of librarians and what would happen if someone accidentally got crushed when the electronic compact shelving mechanism malfunctioned. How would my imaginary librarians react if they found the body? Would they accuse each other? Who would they think did it? I wrote about 6 pages and showed it to my husband. He liked it and I asked, "How would you like to write the rest of this book with me?" He kindly agreed and that's how we started writing books together.
The Husband: I got inspired when my wife started writing eBooks. She graciously allowed me to add my ten cents worth into the books she was writing and the rest is history. I'm so lucky she's allowed me into her domain.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The wife: I love bouncing ideas off each other. I am constantly amazed by some of the dialogue and ideas my husband comes up with. One of my favorite things to do is to sit out in our garden, have a glass of wine, and read to each other what the other has written that day. I always knew that my husband was a good writer (he seduced me with a poem he'd written about me). But I'm amazed by just how good of a writer he is and how much better he writes with each book.
The husband: Forget what she said. She's the better writer. I'm just along for the fun ride. It's a joy to be creating our little works of art and then unleashing them onto the world!
