Official bio


Natasha founded the kind press in 2019 with the goal of advocating for authors in publishing. Through her experience as an editor, she’s had the privilege of editing hundreds of books—including numerous bestsellers—that reflect her passion of collaborating with writers to turn their book visions into printed reality. Building on her experience as a writing mentor, acquiring editor and book editor, she is seen as a professional nurturing a national community of writers. Natasha consults to a broad range of clients who are looking to build their author platforms, better understand the complicated world of publishing, and get published. She’s always looking for authors with underrepresented voices and diverse perspectives that will expand our thinking in the categories of self-help, wellness, social justice, spirituality, narrative nonfiction and select illustrated titles.

Natasha is an active member of the Small Press Network, the Australian Publishing Association and the Australian Book Industry Awards.


The Process

Let’s Connect

I’ll be there for you every step of the way, offering editorial guidance. You won’t be left alone to flounder through this new literary world. I want you to write the best book you can, and will give you the tools and support you need to do it. I offer more than just editing, I’m your publishing guide! In my care, you will arrive quickly to the day you hold your book. Our collaboration will be as unique as your manuscript.


I launched the kind press to be an innovative publishing platform and collaborative way to publish for authors looking for a solution between traditional and self-publishing. I’ve sourced the best designers, typesetters, proofreaders, copywriters, book publicists, and publishing professionals in the industry to give authors a traditional house experience, while allowing you to retain full ownership of your project. With our publishing team, you could be a published author in a matter of months.
