Lorraine Cobcroft - Editor


I'm broadly experienced, creative, innovative, empathetic, and have a passion for excellence in everything I do (and I'm Australian).


I am semi-retired after decades of technical and business writing for a living. I now write fiction and creative non-fiction but also offer beta reading/critiquing and reviewing services for writers and assistance to self-publish.
