Children's book editor.
Publishing consultant.
Inclusivity reader.

I help publishers and organisations create fun and inclusive children's books. 

Because books should be for everyone.

I help publishers and organisations create authentically inclusive children's books. I'm experienced in editing books for ages 0-12, and specialise in illustrated books. I work with:

  • Publishing houses and agents who need an experienced editor with a focus on inclusivity

  • International publishing houses and rights agents who need support on English language translations

  • Charities and other organisations interested in finding a publishing partner to create a children’s book

I mainly work with publishers. However, I sometimes help authors who want to be traditionally published and have received interest in their books from agents, but haven't signed with an agent or publisher yet. In this case, you usually only need a manuscript critique to determine how to make your book most appealing to agents and publishers.

If you want additional editing services to prepare your manuscript before submitting to agents, please contact me with details so I can advise you accordingly.

I also provide query letter reviews for those who are ready to submit but need support preparing their submissions package. 

Please note that I don't generally work with self-publishing authors. However, if I feel I’m a good fit for your project, I would be happy to provide an editorial package specific to your publishing plan.

"The inclusivity work Lisa undertook with We Are Family was transformational. We have learned so much through working with Lisa and cannot recommend highly enough her clear advice, far-reaching experience and profound belief in creating inclusive and sensitive children’s books for all."
