Albert Lou attends Upper Canada College in Toronto, Ontario and is in 11th grade. He has had a lifelong passion for writing and enjoys experimenting with diverse genres and styles. He distinctly recalls writing and illustrating poorly crafted comics as a young child and developing an adoration for fantasy and YA novels as a young teen before settling on the persistent ardor he continues to hold for memoirs and creative nonfiction. He has avid interests in exploring careers in English, law, and history, but prefers to leave the details of what lies ahead of him unwritten, gliding down the river of life wherever the waters take him. The Five is his first fiction novella.
