Welcome to the website of Maren Child – Australian writer, editor and artist.


Writing, editing and online publishing services

If you are looking for help with writing, editing and online publishing, please visit StarBytes Press, the Australian small press which I have set up to provide services to self-publishers and to publish and distribute ebooks.

On my blog, I write about art, illustration, self-publishing, trains and other topics. I recommend and link to other blogs, books and websites that readers with similar interests may find useful.
