Hawkesbury Press was founded in 2014 by indie author and publishing consultant Debbie Young to publish a small selection of books by other indie authors and community groups.
It operates on a sole trader basis ie Debbie Young trading as Hawkesbury Press. To ensure Hawkesbury Press books meet professional standards, we employ other experts on a freelance basis as required.
