I am an accredited editor with the Institute of Professional Editors, with over 20 years experience, and a former managing editor with Hardie Grant in Melbourne and John Brown Publishing in London.


I heartily recommend Heather Millar to you. Heather joined Hardie Grant when we launched our business. I knew she’d have the versatility we needed as a start-up, as well as the strong editorial skills that were recommended to me. Heather was able to do everything – from creating magazine concepts from scratch, to commissioning, writing and editing copy. Her communication with clients was clear and respectful, and she always met deadlines. She is versatile, creative and thorough – a true professional.

I had the pleasure of working with Heather on my first book Faces and Food of the FleurieuHeather wrote the profiles for each of the 80 food businesses that are featured in this first-of-a-kind cookbook. This was a tremendous job – yet Heather managed to capture the essence of each business/person and recipe beautifully. Heather’s 20+ years in the industry shine through her writing and editing services. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for help with their books and publications.

When deciding on an editor for my book, it was important for me to connect with someone who could see and understand my vision, as well as connecting with my story. Heather was able to do that. I also gained a lot of learning along the way. Heather really opened my eyes and mind up to the craft of writing, and worked with me in a way that I could understand. I am so appreciative for her work and what I’ve learnt.
