I work with aspiring and established authors from across the globe, from my base on the picturesque Central Coast on Australia’s eastern seaboard.

I’m experienced in working with first-time authors through to seasoned writers. My job is to make your manuscript the best it can be. I love what I do, and I’m good at it! I’m calm, friendly, supportive and have a dry sense of humour. I have empathy and imagination, and will work with you to help you take your novel where you want it to go – whether that is to a small group of people, or the world.

My clients have included: aspiring authors, independent (self-published) authors, Allen & Unwin, Bookouture, Brio Books, Canelo, Hardie Grant, Harpeth Road Press, Hera Books, Pantera Press, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster.

I am a Professional IPEd member.

"Thank you Lauren Finger for being such a brilliant proofreader. Not only do you spot the inconsistencies and make suggestions, but I feel like I'm having a conversation with you as I go through it which makes it really enjoyable! And you spotted some real corkers."
