About your instructor
Australian author Elle Carter Neal has been in the publishing industry for 18 years, and has edited more than 2 million words, working with 27 different authors. She is the author of five books, numerous short stories, and has been involved in ghostwriting and ghostediting on several projects.
Before she resigned to pursue her publishing career full time, Elle trained as a secretary and worked her way up from filing clerk to executive assistant at director level. She has worked in Australia, England, and South Africa. One of the highlights of her secretarial career was travelling to Johannesburg in South Africa to take the minutes for a three-day SADC water conference in 2001, summarising the presentations of delegates from more than ten different countries.
Elle brings her experience from both the corporate and creative fields together in this course, teaching virtual and personal assistants how to support authors and publishers.
