Andrew Mortazavi - Ghostwriter

Chicago, IL, United States

Writer-turned-ghostwriter with more than 20 books ghostwritten. I specialize in memoir, general nonfiction, business books, and fiction.

Overview

I am a ghostwriter with four years of professional experience and more than 20 shipped books under my belt.

Past and current clients include: CEOs and founders, Hollywood film producers, speakers and self-help professionals, a celebrated war hero, a holocaust survivor, entertainment and sports personalities, marketers and market research companies, bestselling authors, and many more.

Special interest in memoirs and biographies, as well as political books, business books, and general nonfiction with BIG IDEAS.

I was a creative writing professor, journalist, editor, writing fellow, etc... before settling into ghostwriting. Basically, words are my jam, and I am very good at what I do--testimonials to prove it.

I can take your ideas and words and arrange them to sound more articulate, reasoned, intelligent, and emotive. More than just capturing your voice, I can help you sound more like yourself.
