Josie Montano - Children's/Teen Author
I live with my family in The Gap, Brisbane, and work as a full-time writer. My love of fiction writing began at age 8, where I shelved my self-published stories in the school library. I worked in the primary school environment as a teacher-aide, secretary and library-aide. I have completed a Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. My published works are listed here.

I am able to provide appraisal/editing on manuscripts from children's books to adults literature, please contact me regarding my rates.
Josie Santomauro's editing and appraisal service is excellent. I recently engaged Josie's services for a new manuscript I had prepared. Josie provided detailed comments and useful general advice. Josie's expertise in writing, particularly in writing books for young people and books on disability, was evident in her insightful comments. Josie's edit added immeasurable value to my manuscript and was completed promptly and for a reasonable price. I am happy to say that the manuscript was accepted to be published by the first publisher I approached. I can strongly recommend Josie's editorial and appraisal services.
