I help people tell their stories. As a ghostwriter, I can record your story and write your book as if you wrote it yourself.

As a life story writer, I can do the same thing, but on a smaller scale. This generally involves a 6 to 10 week process, one hour session per week, where we record your story. I then transcribe your words and and capture them for posterity in a booklet.

If you have written your memoir or autobiography already, I can polish your words. I am an accredited editor with over 20 years experience, so you can rest assured, I know what I’m doing.

I also enjoy storytelling in a business sense – telling the story of your business or brand. I can write content for your website, blog, brochures etc. I can also advise on your communications strategy.

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.

Rojina McDonald, Founder, Soul Publishing

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.
