Biographical Note
Hi there, I'm Tanya Natalie - an editor based in Australia. I have over ten years of experience editing all forms of written material. I have a passion for all things books; reading, editing and even writing. I love editing just as much as I love books and reading, and being able to edit while working in my bookshop is my ideal situation.

The books I have edited include manuscripts from many different genres; fantasy, biography, fiction, travel, romance and more. I have also edited numerous essays, websites, resumes, articles and blogs. My editing services include proofreading, copy editing, line editing, structural editing, developmental editing and ghostwriting. I can also provide manuscript critiques for part or full manuscripts that will help you resolve issues with plot, characters, dialogue, etc.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature from Sydney University as well as a Diploma of Book Editing and Publishing from Macleay College, in which I received High Distinctions.

In addition to editing and proofreading services, I also provide social media services for a number of different companies. In this role, I write and edit articles, as well as maintain a social presence online on such sites as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

I also own and operate a second-hand bookshop in Hornsby, NSW, Australia, and I adore being surrounded by books.

Editing isn't just something I know - I love it! I am one of those rare people that really enjoys the editing process. My favourite clients are often first-time authors who are interested in self-publishing their work.

Please consider me for your next writing project.

Thank you.

Tanya
