About Me

smiling girl

I am an editor, writer and copywriter based in Geelong, Victoria, providing structural editing, copyediting, proofreading and beta reading services for both fiction and non-fiction authors. My copywriting portfolio includes real estate copywriting, website content, promotional material and blog writing.

I also design book trailers using multi-media. I create the copy after close consultation with the author, then prepare the layout using images and music to complement the Author’s vision. The trailers can easily be uploaded to YouTube, Instagram, websites and Twitter.

I have produced four promotional trailers for award-winning author Juliet Marillier, including three for Juliet’s fantasy trilogy The Warrior Bards series ( PanMacmillan Australia). The first trailer was for the 2019 release of The Harp Of Kings and the second for the sequel released in 2020 – A Dance With Fate. The third booktrailer was for Song of Flight, published in July 2021 and all three were the official trailer for PanMacmillan Australia. I also created a book video for Juliet’s stand-alone book: Mother Thorn – and other stories of Courage and Kindness (Serenity Press)

Author Christina Houen commissioned me to make two book trailers – one for This Place You Know (Ginninderra Press 2019) and the second for her sequel, A Practise of Loss (Ginninderra Press 2021)

I spent four years in London, as PA and a website administrator at Billy Marsh Associates, writing copy for a client’s website and looking after e-commerce and I am now the website administrator for www.julietmarillier.com

I edit fiction and non-fiction books and in my spare time, I am raising teenage twins. To relax I read historical non-fiction. I also drink quite a lot of tea.

Annette produced a wonderful book trailer for my novel, The Harp of Kings. She is highly professional and consults her clients at every stage of the creative process.
