Rowena Rae is a freelance editor, writer and writing coach and a partner with West Coast Editorial Associates. She works with clients ranging from government agencies to self-publishing authors and focuses on science, health, business, museum and education materials. Rowena also writes non-fiction books for 9–12-year-olds and collaborates with her sister as co-author and co-publisher of fiction stories for children who are struggling with learning to read. She particularly enjoys helping others become more confident writers and editors.
