Lee and John Faber formed FaberFaber partnership in 1992

Lee Faber Apr 2012 Lee is a native American with British citizenship, having lived and worked in the UK since 1981. During the course of her career, she has been involved with book editing and publishing, copywriting, graphic design and writing for newspapers, newsletters and magazines.

She set up Copywrite Corporation in the US in 1976, researching and writing newspaper advertorials for a wide range of retail businesses. Other activities included extensive copywriting for a large Florida property developer.

After moving to the UK, she found a niche editing and writing parts of many books with an emphasis on health, food and cookery: this included translating from English to American and vice versa.

Lee has written eleven books which have been published in the UK. They are-

  • “Healthy Oils”
  • “Aloe Vera”
  • “Berries”
  • “Juices & Smoothies”
  • “Beginners Guide to Raising Chickens”
  • “Raising Pigs”
  • “Raising Goats”
  • "Angels - Divine Messengers and Personal Guardians"
  • "The Book of Angels"
  • "Grandmother's Wisdom"
  • "A Book for Granny"

Examples of some of her work can be seen on the Books Written and Books Edited pages.

Some of the publishers she has worked with are--

  • Amber Books
  • Arcturus Publishing
  • Barefoot Books
  • Carroll & Brown
  • Cico Books
  • Dorling Kindersley
  • Edbury Publishing
  • Hamlyn
  • Kyle Cathie
  • Michael O'Mara Books
  • Omnipress
  • Pan Macmillan/Rodale
  • Quadrille Publishing
  • Reader's Digest
  • Saqi Books
  • Thorsons (now part of Harper Collins)
  • Watkins Publishing

She wrote and edited corporate and public sector magazines and newsletters, market and annual reports. She contributed to consumer and trade magazines, and conceived and produced promotional materials for a wide variety of clients.

She also provides text for websites: many sites have great visuals, but are weakened by hard-to-understand copy or typographical errors. Lee can put what you want to say into simple English.

Her background has given her broad experience working across multicultural boundaries and exposed her to a variety of occupations. She can talk to anyone from the shop floor to the boardroom, write about any subject, and make it interesting and understandable.

John Faber Aug 2012

John is a UK native who also has dual British / US citizenship.

During his corporate career he held senior management positions in the US and UK in the area of flavour and fragrance ingredients, pharmaceutical intermediates and forest chemicals, operating in all major international markets.

When John left corporate life, he and Lee decided they could be a formidable team and they set up FaberFaber in tandem with Copywrite Corporation.

John’s global contacts and expertise brought in marketing and consulting opportunities, which added value to the business and provided a broader and different client base.

FaberFaber likes to work with businesses and organizations on an ongoing basis, becoming part of their team; the partnership has many loyal long-standing clients who have discovered that outsourcing is cost-effective. Our fees are based on a day rate, retainer or project basis – whichever makes sense.

FaberFaber works with designers, illustrators, printers, web experts and other professionals, linking its two-man band with a lot of talented people.
