Overview

I'm a writer, editor and tech enthusiast who will test-drive any new tool or platform at least once. I tested out a lot of different jobs, too, before pursuing my passion for words.

These days I speak fluent science, finance, business, military, culture, sport and health. And the thing I like most about editing is helping others find their voice, so they can speak their stories loud and clear.

I hold a Bachelor of Science (Physics) and a Master of Arts (Writing). I'm a member of the Society of Editors (Queensland), Inc., the Australian Society of Authors and the Queensland Writers Centre.

Perfume Therapy

Kirsty McManus

Chloe Beech is all set for a two-week holiday in Thailand with her sister Mia.
