Sue Cheer - Founder
Sue Cheer is the founder of Story Pieces, where she is excited to be serving you to bring your story to the page. Her mission is to help people create and preserve personal naratives of all kinds. She believes that we should strive to live the best life we can, and that there is a story in every moment. Her interest in storytelling, psychology, people, and culture was sparked at the University of Auckland, where she earned her Doctorate in Anthropology. Sue tutored and lectured in Anthropology for eight years before becoming a health and science writer, a career she has navigated successfully for eighteen years. She has worked for publishing and communications companies in New Zealand and the United Kingdom and is now owner and principal writer of a freelance writing business, Creative Ink. She has written educational materials for large organisations, along with video scripts, booklets, and articles. Sue's story Ice Cream was longlisted for National Flash Fiction Day NZ 2019 and she has been published in Flash Frontier. Sue invites you to join her on a journey to collect personal story pieces from people across the world.
Story Pieces works in collaboration with writing experts, successful authors, and book editors.
If you have a memoir that would benefit from professional editing, consider using one of our expert editors working in partnership with Story Pieces. Please be aware that editors often have a full schedule, so ensure that you book the services of your editor at least four months in advance.
Sara Litchfield - Editor
Sara Litchfield is owner and managing editor of Right Ink on the Wall, a book editing company that believes in making a mark on the wall of the world. Sara’s mission is to help people tell their stories – she believes everyone has an important tale to tell and that a book is not only a labour of love but a work of art; being able to help structure, shape and shine the final piece is a precious process requiring energy and commitment.
Born in the English Midlands, Sara earned a Masters in Theology at the University of Cambridge before becoming a reluctant ‘Big Four’ accountant in London. In 2012, she emigrated to Middle Earth (sometimes known as New Zealand), where she changed careers, built her business, and now devotes herself to all things words and wonderful. Her debut novel, dystopian thriller The Night Butterflies, was released in 2014. Find out more about Sara’s editing services at www.rightinkonthewall.com.
