Need feedback on your novel? Trying to improve your writing craft? I can help.

I have been writing and critiquing fiction for over fifteen years. I'm an accredited editor (Australian Institute of Professional Editors), with a BCrA (Honours) in Creative Writing and an MA in Publishing and Editing, and a graduate of the Odyssey Writing Workshop, one of the premier audition-only workshops for writing speculative fiction.

I can take your novel draft (no matter how spaghetti-laden a mess it is) and help you shape the structure of the story, characterisation and character arcs, pacing, plot threads, setting and theme. All the big picture stuff.

Technical writing (also known as technical editing, documenting and business writing) is a wide field covering any kind of writing that needs to be clear, precise, accurate and efficient. For example:

  • User guides and troubleshooting manuals.
  • Tutorials and self-paced learning.
  • Customer information sheets.
  • Warning information and emergency procedures.
  • Business policies and procedures.
  • Business tenders.
  • Software API documentation.
  • Anything else that needs to be clearly and quickly understood.

I have experience creating print, online, e-book and in-app documentation for a wide range of subject matter, including training and assessment material and indexing. I am an accredited editor (Australian Institute of Professional Editors) with a Master's in Publishing and Editing, and have additional Masters' in Computer Science and in Commerce. This gives me an excellent knowledge-base for documenting software, API's, business systems and policies and financial software or procedures.
