PnB Publishing was dreamed up by two book-loving, absurd sisters growing up in Gippsland in the early 1980s. Their fathers’ version of swearing while not actually swearing was to yell “POOP ‘N’ BUM!!!!” when the proverbial hammer hit his thumb, and he knew his girls were in earshot.

The girls would dissolve into the unbridled hysterical laughter of the young and ridiculous, finding words like ‘poop’ and ‘bum’ hilarious. Because they are. The girls went on to decide that when they “grew up”, they would begin a publishing company together, and they would call it Poop N Bum Publishing.

One of these nutters is Melanie Bateson, founder of PnB Publishing, a writer who has finally decided to get serious about her craft. Her freelancing career has included:

  • blogging for the Health & Wellness sector
  • guest editing and providing articles for a local ‘zine
  • SEO copywriting
  • publishing articles on the AFL site, for Mamamia and various other publications
  • and much, much more…

As long as she is writing, Melanie is happy!
