Are you ready to take your manuscript to the next level?

I’m Laura Greaves, an award-winning freelance editor, journalist and best-selling author based in Sydney, Australia. I’ve been writing for and editing books and publications in Australia and around the world for 20 years, and have worked for leading consumer publishers including Simon & Schuster, News Limited, Bauer Media, Pacific Magazines and The Conde Nast Publications.

I’m the author of three romantic comedy novels, Two Weeks ’til Christmas,  Be My Baby and The Ex-Factor, all published by the world’s largest publisher, Penguin Random House (PRH). My best-selling nonfiction books, Incredible Dog Journeys and Dogs with Jobs are also published by PRH. My new book, The Rescuers, will hit shelves in November 2018.

I’ve also co-authored and edited four anthologies of romantic comedy short stories: Autumn Leaves, Winter Heat, Spring Fling and Summer Daze.

I have a Graduate Diploma in Screenwriting from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS). I’ve had short plays produced, have worked in television and in 2011 was a finalist for the Australian Writers’ Guild’s Monte Miller Award for best unproduced screenplay. There’s not much I don’t know about story structure and character development!

In addition to being an experienced writer and meticulous editor, I’m a voracious reader of all genres of fiction and nonfiction. I simply love great storytelling, and am passionate about working with authors to polish and improve their work.
