Book Editor

Book Editor

If you need words written, edited, or coaxed – I am your girl! I am an editor, copywriter, journalist, and author.

My writing career started in my teenage years with scribbles of stories, dialogues and poems on napkins while working at a fuel station in a regional Queensland town. At 17 I took off for the ‘big smoke’ of Brisbane where I worked as an actress while also submitting my writing to any publication and competition that would accept it. A mentorship and several awards later, I decided to try my hand at journalism.

While I now look back on this decision and ponder at the reasoning, it took me on quite an adventure working at a digital magazine and gossip column in London, small newspapers throughout Queensland, and in the features department of News Queensland in Brisbane.

After years of working very long hours in newsrooms I craved a little more freedom (and fresh air), which saw me accepting a job on the Sunshine Coast working for a small and exciting digital agency. Over the past six years I have specialised in writing for small business, with a focus on events such as festivals, social media, SEO charged website copy, and ecommerce.

I now work as a freelance copywriter and editor, working with small start ups, writers (new and established), as well as agencies. Wondering if we should work together? Call or email and tell me about your project.

Book editing is my passion. I offer two levels of service for editing and pricing depends on the number of pages, and level of editing required.

Editing and Consulting – for those who have a completed manuscript and know something is missing, or it needs a fresh perspective to take it to the next level.

Simple Proofreading – for those who have a manuscript they know is ready for submission or publishing, but they need someone to check spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
