I am a freelance editor and fiction author published with Harlequin Escape and Penguin Random House. I have a Bachelor of Arts (Communications) and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Professional Publication and Editing. I am a member of Romance Writers of Australia and a Margie Lawson Immersion Grad. I provide editorial services to trade publishers and authors direct.
I am particularly interested in mystery/thriller, romance, young/new adult, fantasy and commercial/popular fiction.
When you contact me regarding your manuscript, please describe it in general terms - what genre of fiction, word count, a brief (one page maximum) synopsis, and an indication of what kind of editing you require.
"Elise was my editor on No Place Like You. She was lovely to work with – really clear in her comments and quick to get back to me with any queries I still had. And most importantly, she made lots of great suggestions! Elise is ace – if you’re considering hiring an editor, she’s a great choice. Find her at http://www.elisekackers.net" - Marnie St Clair, author of No Place Like You.
I loved working with Elise. With the keen eyes of a writer, editor and reader, Elise made me think about things I never would have thought of and picked up on things I had missed over 10 edits! She made great suggestions and helped mould the final edit of my book. Friendly, professional and thorough, I highly recommend Elise’s services and I will definitely use her again for my next book." - Clare Griffin, author of Tumble.
