About Me

I am a published fiction writer, historian, freelance editor and teacher. I have an Honours Degree in History from the University of Melbourne, a Master’s in Public History from Monash University and a Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing from RMIT. I am a full member of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd), an associate member of the Professional Historians Association and a member of Writers Victoria.

I have been an editor for AXA Australia and LookSmart International. Since 2013, I have been a freelance editor, editing PhDs, Master’s Degrees and Doctorates, along with history books and fiction. A history I edited, Suburbs at War: The Cities of Malvern and Prahran during the Great War by Dr Helen Doyle, was awarded the ‘Centenary of World War 1 Award’ at the Victorian Community History Awards in 2015.
