About Diane Lee

Diane Lee is a freelance writer, editor and self published author based in Adelaide, South Australia

Hello! My name is Diane Lee and I’m a freelance content writer, copywriter, editor and self-published author, from Adelaide, South Australia. I recently returned from Hanoi, Vietnam, where I lived for four years (2016-2020).

I have a Master of Arts in Communication Management from the University of South Australia, where I graduated top of my cohort in 2008. In 2023, I started a law degree.

I have spent a large portion of my working life in education, either directly or indirectly and I’ve also worked on projects for government, travel, tech, content agencies, tech start-ups and social enterprises/NGOs.

I enjoy writing creative nonfiction, personal essays and memoir, which you will find in copious amounts on my site. These are “think” pieces where I’m trying to unravel and work out a problem creatively because I’m one of those people who does their best thinking by writing.

How I can help you

In Hanoi, I found my bliss as freelance content writer, copywriter and editor. I have always written professionally, but reinventing myself with a mobile, flexible career was both the question and the answer.

In the four years I lived in Hanoi, I worked on a range of projects from travel and corporate websites, blog articles for SEO purposes, magazine stories, academic editing, a communications strategy for a eco-products/thrift shop, ghost wrote a memoir, managed crisis communications for an environmental project to social media and content marketing for a refillable bottle project—and everything in between.

You can check out my freelance services here, my portfolio here and you can view my LinkedIn profile here.

If you are interested in hiring me to work on your content writing, editing or marketing communications project, contact me and I’d be happy to have a chat.

Self published author

My non-fiction books, the Love & Other Brave Acts series, are primarily based on my personal experiences of love, dating, work and family, and the insights I’ve gained from these experiences.

I also write fiction, and have published a number of short stories, with more to come.

I have a few exciting projects on the go, including two memoirs and a full length novel—based on a screenplay I wrote 20 years ago—which is challenging and exciting.

All my books are available from my publishing imprint Delicious Publishing, in the Delicious Publishing Bookstore.

The Diane Lee Project

This website began life as The Diane Lee Project, a blog that I started in 2006 and is the source material for the Love & Other Brave Acts series.

The Diane Lee Project can best be described as a collection of personal growth essays and posts that document my insights, views and experiences about life.

I post to The Diane Lee Project regularly, so make sure you join my email list so you never miss a post.

My interests

Having discovered the three loves of my life—running, travel and photography—I try to devote as much time as I can to each of these endeavours. I’ve run three half marathons since 2014, but have now retired from running long distance events.

At home, I’m the employee of a much loved cat. I’m single—and have been more or less so—ever since my heart was broken by the Italian more than 20 years ago. Not that I’m defined by that!

I also love travelling—and writing about travelling—and taking lots of photos while I travel. Combining photography with writing is the perfect gig for me.
