Overview

The people I write books with have fascinating stories to tell and important messages to share. Often, their talents lie elsewhere or they lack the writing experience and the hundreds of free hours needed to navigate the choppy waters of book-writing.

By building a working relationship that is warm, open and collaborative, I'm able to turn the sketchiest of outlines into a book worth buying. I’m interested in people, generous with my ideas and I care deeply about each project. I want my clients to enjoy working with me, I want them to succeed, I want their book to sell well and I want readers to connect with their stories in meaningful ways.

In addition to my writing work, I also have extensive experience as a non-fiction editor. I spent several years heading up Jamie Oliver’s in-house editorial team before working as an editorial manager at one of Australia’s leading non-fiction publishers. This gives me a unique perspective and allows me to see the book-making process from both sides: author and publisher.

Books that I have writing credits on are below.
