Hi Tony,

I am new in this industry (in Australia), however I have worked for many years as a proofreader in France. I love retelling stories using reader friendly language or more academic one, depending on what the author's intentions are. I feel at ease writing, and I can do both fiction and non-fiction stories. It would be my pleasure to work with you on this project, and I can also offer formatting, editing and cover design if needed, as these are part of my professional competencies. The dollar figure bellow is just an indication, considering how new I am. If you wish to view some of my past work, kindly please email me and I will provide you with what I have. All the best and hopefully will hear from you, Cora

Hello Tony I’m a professional writer and editor. I'd be very happy to speak with you about this project. I couldn’t possibly give you an accurate idea of cost before doing that. The figures below are just to fill the space. You might like to look at my Ozlance profile, and also at I also do a lot of ghostwriting – not so easy to show samples of that :) Hope to hear from you. Best regards Janette

Hi Tony, I'm a former print journalist, serving police officer (designated Detective) with more than 20 years in the job and a freelance Copywriter. I was a crime reporter in NSW newspapers prior to starting my career in policing. Your project sounds fascinating - and right up my alley with a background in crime writing and extensive experience in CI, including a number of years in child protection and specialist areas within crime squads. I'd love to talk more to you about your project, and how we might come up with a great result for what are really compelling stories. I look forward to talking with you, Emilie

Hi Tony,

Thank you for the invite.

I'm also keen to know your time frame as I do have other things on the go as well. I also need further clarification on what you mean by "you need assistance to write and format" and whether this will be one book or a series of stories.

I look forward to discussing this further.

Hi Tony

I'm interested to chat further about your project. I've worked quite a bit in the area of dealing with the legal industry and police services. Given the sensitive nature of your topic, if you'd like to chat directly it might be better than disclosing online. My email is, phone number is 0414 495 804 and website is to review my professional background. I'm an author and have ghost written and edited other author (and emerging author's) works. I am also a professional counsellor so sensitive to the protocols involved in disclosure related content.

If you'd like to chat further, please give me a call or send an email. Alison
