My name is Tessa King and I am an editorial freelancer living on sunny Waiheke Island in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf.
A love of words and design runs in my family. Both of my parents worked with books – my earliest memories feature my mum at the kitchen table with a set of page proofs and a red pen while I played happily with Letraset offcuts from my dad’s design work – and my sister is a writer. I have worked for New Zealand’s biggest names in publishing as well as for a couple of its smallest and have experience in editorial, project management, writing, research and creative-field publicity. I work with a wide range of genres, with my love of books and of cooking resulting in a particular soft spot for cookbooks.
Thanks for stopping by.
