I am a professional member of both Editors QLD and Sfep (UK) with a national qualification in editing, writing and publishing developed against the codified Australian Institute of Professional Editors (IPed) standards.

I am currently the managing editor, writer, researcher and desktop publisher at The Erudite Pen. I also work with publishing houses and independent authors, editing their fiction and nonfiction manuscripts to industry publication standards. In addition to this, I specialise in academic and scientific editing and writing, especially in the health and medical sciences, and am a white-listed editor within Australian schools of medicine and faculties of science. Possessing clinical health, metaphysical and corporate career and educational backgrounds, I edit diverse documents and manuscripts in these fields as well.

Please see my Linked In Profile for my specific career and education background as well as for client recommendations. My commitment to excelling in my professional life is very high, and this is reflected in the writing and editing work I undertake.

I have a particular passion for:

  • Human consciousness development
  • Expanded and altered states of consciousness (AESC)
  • Out-of-body experiences (OBEs)
  • Near-death experiences (NDEs)
  • Metaphysics
  • Contemplative meditation disciplines (trophotropy) and their scientific substantiation
  • Ecstatic practice and arousal (ergotropy) and its scientific validation
  • Transpersonal psychology
  • Parapsychology
  • Spirituality and religious science

"Dr Juliette Lachemeier is more than an editor. She teaches and supportes you through the project. For me it is very important that my voice is kept in the books I write - Juliette even enhanced my voice and made it clearer. She is very professional and friendly at the same time. So I really recommend Juliette as an editor. She is my go-to editor!" Susana Mei Silverhoj, Published author.
