I’ve been an editor since 2015. My specialities are working with new authors and small press publishers to prepare books for publishing. When an author comes to me with non-fiction and New Age projects, they often have a wealth of information to share but they’re not sure how to turn this resource into a book. And that’s where a professional editor can help.
In fiction, an author might have all the ingredients but the storytelling is not clear. In trade publishing processes, manuscripts go through a structural editing stage to check these things, where I specialise.
Editing is so much more than correcting sentences and spelling errors. It can be a type of mentorship for those that are first-time publishers. My aim is to help you get better at what you do.
I have recently opened LZS Press – my own small press to publish my first book – and have a great understanding of the the publishing process from all sides.
As an editor, my job is to help you improve your message. I can help you from conception to publication. a

Bowl the Maidens Over is a story about Australia’s first female cricketers. Told through the media’s lens, this pictorial book will take you back to 1874 to the Sandhurst Easter Fair, to experience the first game of women’s cricket.
The book is about cricket, but it’s also about a bigger story – about a woman’s right to play sport.
