Nat Petrohelos

Hi! I’m Nat.

Welcome to my website.

I write picture books, short stories and junior fiction. I’m also a freelance copy editor and proofreader with over 10 years of experience and I have recently added manuscript assessments to my services.

I have a degree in Communication Studies and a Postgraduate diploma in Secondary Education (English and Drama).

I live in Newcastle, NSW, under the shade of a giant Japanese maple tree. Our tree is home to a family of magpies who we call John, Maggie and their baby, Pip. They roost there every night and wake me up early in the morning with their singing. I also love to sing and am part of an acapella group. We sing songs from around the world in many different languages, but we haven’t quite mastered Magpie yet.

You can read samples of my work and find details of my professional development over on my writing page. 

If you would like a quote for professional editing or a manuscript assessment, please email me via my contact page, or find me on facebook as Nat Petrohelos Editor.
