Editor Writer Services

My aim is to help you shine ...

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your words in print, or knowing that the website or document you are presenting to the world is first rate and does you proud. That's what I am here to help you with.

Words were my first and core profession. I began my professional career as an advertising copywriter, then moved on to become a freelance editor and writer. While broadening my skill set with studies in the arts, I have continued to write and to edit - and will always do so!

It is a pleasure and an honour for me to help clients by shaping their ideas and words into an alluring article, book or website and to provide assistance to those talented thinkers (you!) who might have glowing concepts and stories, but struggle with the complexities of grammar or clear thinking and flow.

Memoir and Story Editing

Do you have a book in you?

An interesting project I worked on locally was the Australian memoir: Robbie Rundell's "Diving Into Life!". This six month long endeavour began as a handwritten pile of lively but unpolished stories and ended up as a fabulous self-published paperback - complete with celebrity recommendations on the cover! We also took this publication through to Kindle and I-book format.

Another project was the task of editing the second autobiographical book of best-selling West Australian author Carla van Raay ("God's Callgirl"). Her memoir, "The Price of Passion," was published by HarperCollins.

This kind of project is a highly enriching journey for both author and editor.

Website and Online Writing

Recent projects have included:

- editing an extraordinary memoir of survival and courage by a local West Australian author
- editing a dynamic online weight loss course
- rewriting and optimising a contemporary jewellery designer's website
- creating websites for a new author, a mining company and a tree surgeon
- polishing an About Us page on a fabulous art learning website.

Screenplays

During my long association with the late and unique Australian-based film director Paul Cox, I assessed many scripts and collaborated on others. I recently completed the first draft rewrite of a feature length drama set in Hawaii, based on an original concept by an American attorney.

EDITING AND WRITING RATES

I believe in keeping my rates accessible to as many people as possible. If you are a writer with a large project that requires editing, please contact me to discuss options.

I look forward to adding you to my list of satisfied clients!

"Thank you for everything you have done for me and all the encouragement along the way. I wouldn't have been able to do it without you." - Moya G Mulvay, author of "Overcoming Life's Challenges"
