Editor and Author

Meet Louise

“I love working with words. 
As an author my job is to create; as an editor it’s to make your words shine.”

I’m a writer, editor and researcher and love working on projects that range from spelling to sport. I’ve edited novels, novellas, short stories, anthologies, non-fiction books, diaries, cookbooks, instruction books and tarot and oracle card sets at all the various stages of editing. My published works include flash and short fiction,  non-fiction articles and features, some peer-reviewed, and a non-fiction book called Bowl the Maidens Over: Our First Women Cricketers.

Melbourne is my home and I live here with my husband and two adult children, two cats and a dog. You’ll generally find me involved in a committee or organisation that’s linked to the writing community, or on panels judging awards. Community is a great aspect of my work and I love staying in touch with other writers and editors. I’ll say g’day if I see you at a convention or event, so seek me out. In my spare time I also organise writing retreats.
