Jody Lee

Jody Lee has worked in the publishing industry as an associate publisher (Simon & Schuster), commissioning editor and project editor (Random House and the ABC).

She now freelances for all the major trade publishing houses editing books for children, YA and adults, including both fiction and non-fiction, ranging from biography, memoir, travel, history and popular culture.

Working with writers is about focusing on storytelling and helping to develop their signature voice and style. It is also about encouraging a writer to take risks, to connect with their audience, to think critically about their craft and to keep reminding them why they took the leap into writing in the first place.
