Kathryn Ledson


Kathryn Ledson spent about 25 years in the corporate arena, mostly as a senior personal assistant, and mostly in Melbourne. In 2006, she abandoned her corporate life and returned to school, completing a Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing. Since then, she’s operated as a freelance editor, concentrating her energies mostly on fiction projects with some corporate work thrown in.

Last year, Kathryn was invited to contribute to a non-fiction book project, Working with Mean Girls by Meredith Fuller, published by Penguin in early 2012.

Her absolute, maniacal passion however has been her popular fiction novel, Rough Diamond, which was published by Penguin in January 2013. She is currently writing its sequel, Emerald Island.
