Gemma Metcalfe – Ghostwriter

Big 5 published author and ghostwriter specialising in psychological thrillers, cozy mystery, suspense fiction, memoirs and book-to-script.


Having written for a Big Five publisher I know what it takes to take your seed, idea or story all the way to commercial success. Since 2014 I've written several of my own titles and worked on many projects as a ghostwriter. Having signed NDAs, I'm not at liberty to list all the titles, but some of my previous clients and projects include:

· A humorous memoir series that's sold over 100,000 copies
· A fantasy thriller book-to-screenplay for a Californian client
· A sci-fi screenplay-to-book
. A cozy mystery book series and pilot script
· A self-discovery memoir for a sex addict
· A recovery memoir for a stroke victim
· A psychological thriller for an esteemed British film maker

I make the collaborative process fun and interesting, digging deep to bring out the best story through a series of Q&As and online meetings. My aim is to capture YOUR voice, to make this YOUR story, and to give it every chance of success. We'll work at your speed, and we'll make the whole process an enjoyable experience. At the end, you will have your perfect thriller, cozy mystery or memoir in book or screenplay format - perhaps both, who knows! I can also advise on the best route to publication, whether that's through providing pitch materials for an agent or publisher, or guiding you through the whole self-publication route.
