  • Accountability
  • Editing

  • Self-publication

Helping authors share their stories with the world gives me a huge buzz.

What is your story? Is it fiction for children or adults? Is it a memoir? Is it your business story? Perhaps you’re telling someone else’s story?

Whatever your story is, and whatever stage you’re at, I can help.

Write Angles Press can take you from concept to published book.

My story

From the age of 8, I had my sights set on teaching. For 26 years, I taught in primary schools in Australia and Japan. I resigned in 2020 but haven’t stopped ‘teaching’ because now I’m coaching writers, and mentoring authors through the self-publication process.

I’ve always been a writer. In primary school, I remember proudly reading my stories to the whole school many times over the years. Expressing my ideas, thoughts and soapbox issues via the written word keeps me in my happy place … and got me through breast cancer. 

It took that breast cancer diagnosis in 2017 to make me see that life is too short not to pursue your dreams, and from this, Just Right Words was born in 2019.

Not very many people can say they love what they do.

I can.

Every day is different. Every project is different. Every client is different.

I have the best job in the world.

  • Working with Kellie is so easy. She is patient and pays attention to detail. Helping me edit my first book can’t have been easy but she was so generous with her time and supportive of my learning, it was a wonderful experience.

  • Kellie provided excellent guidance and editing to ensure my teacher notes met curriculum and teacher needs for Preschool and Primary School year levels.

  • Kellie is a sympathetic and perceptive editor whose comments I appreciated and respected. Her feedback on my questions was timely and productive. Communication between us was always of a high standard and my manuscript was the better for her work.
