How can I help you?
- Author coaching
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.
From the age of 8, I had my sights set on teaching. So, that’s what I did — for 25 years. I haven’t actually stopped because now I’m coaching writers, and mentoring authors through the self-publication process. And I love it.
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.
Professionally, I’m constantly seeking new opportunities for professional growth. In 2014, I realised I needed a change but I’d been teaching so long, I didn’t know how; I put the thought in the ‘too hard basket’. It took a breast cancer diagnosis in 2017 to make me see that life is too short not to fully pursue what you love. Hence, Just Right Words was born in 2019. Since then, I’ve added new services so that I can now take authors right through every stage of the process, from concept to book.
Not very many people can say that they love what they do. For me, 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.
