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. I’m a huge fan of the short form, and to date my published works include flash and short fiction,  non-fiction articles and features, including several that have been peer-reviewed.

I live in Melbourne and am married with two adult sons, two cats and a dog, and you’ll generally find me involved in some committee 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 to say hello. In my spare time I also organise writing retreats.

In April I’ll be releasing my first book, so stay tuned for news!
