I'm Tessa, an editor and writer from Aotearoa New Zealand. I have worked in-house for some of the country's most respected publishers, relationships I now continue in a freelance capacity.
I love stories: books, magazine articles, company 'abouts' . . . if it has words, I'm into it. Pretty pictures and design? Even better. How can I help make your story the best it can be?​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Tessa is an editor extraordinaire, polishing my words and making them sing.
Christall Lowe, author of Kai 
Tessa was my saviour on my latest book, Birds. She transformed the text into something far more interesting.
Tim Flach, photographer
Authors loved Tessa and she extended the same courtesy in return. Her calm demeanour, patience, diligence and creativity was a major asset. 
Jeremy Sherlock, former senior publisher, Penguin Random House New Zealand
