Glenn M. – Ghostwriter

Critically-acclaimed best-selling novelist, ghostwriter and editor. I'll help you achieve your vision, publishing dreams and goals.


With my long history as a successfully published and best-selling novelist and ghostwriter, I can help you turn your story into a page turner or polish your work-in-progress. I write novels in many genres, mysteries/ suspense/thrillers/cozies), horror, general fiction, adventure, YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I've also written a number of nonfiction works, including autobiography and true crime. And if you have a script, I can turn this into a novel for your or vice versa.

Google me for the good, the bad and the ugly - some of which might actually be true. My clients include folks from all walks of life, including a sitcom actor and soap opera star. I am comfortable writing stories with strong female and/or male characters. A great character is an interesting character. And what makes them interesting is their story.

I've written dozens of novels in multiple genres under numerous pen names (crime, thrillers, mysteries, cozies, contemporary fiction). I've published with Kensington, Canongate/Severn House, Penguin Random House/Harlequin/Worldwide Mystery Library, Thorndike, Wheeler, Vintage, and more.

If there are words to be written, polished and perfected, please contact me to discuss your project. I'm up for any challenge, respond quickly to queries, and can work under tight deadlines. One publishing house recently contracted me to write a book every 2 months. I also work with non-English native authors looking to polish their books for the English-speaking market. And as an experienced editor, I will ensure that your completed project is fully proofed and edited and ready for publication or submission to agents and editors.

Looking forward to working with you and bringing your vision to life!

A few trade reviews:

LIBRARY JOURNAL: “Wacky characters, liquid prose, frequent humor…Readers who enjoyed Sharon McCrumb’s Bimbos of the Death Sun will also get a kick out of this.”

PUBLISHERS’ WEEKLY: “Readers will enjoy Ripley’s sharp dialogue, which keeps the novel speeding along at a pleasant clip.”

LIBRARY JOURNAL: “Action-packed plot. Recommended.”

BOOKLIST: “Mystery fans will enjoy the clever plot, loopy characters, and sardonic humor… Fans of Greg Kihn’s recent musical mysteries will find a kindred soul in Ripley.”

And if you are looking for lyrics, I am a professional musician and singer-songwriter also with multiple credits.

Very serious. Very diligent. Very deep. Brave for a lot of hard work. Easy to work with. Highly adaptable to working with non-U.S. citizens. Friendly but clear, direct. Exactly what is needed for serious projects with great prospects. It was a pleasure for me to work with him. I look forward to working together again in the future!
