Overview

I have ghostwritten for a CNN employee, Forbes Council Member, and the World Trade Center Gibraltar.

I am the author of over 35 books (both personal and ghostwritten) with many five-star ratings and rave reviews for my work.

I conduct my ghostwriting business with the highest degree of professionalism. All work is kept strictly confidential unless explicit permission is given in writing to do otherwise.

𝗜 𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽𝘀 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗲𝗹𝘀𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗯𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀.

I offer the full suite of ghostwriting services from the initial book outline to writing the actual book, and everything in between. I can simply advise you on your book as you go along or I can write the whole thing for you.

𝗜 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗼 𝗯𝘂𝗶𝗹𝘁 𝗮 𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗻𝗲𝘁𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗼𝗳 𝗹𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗮𝗴𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 who are willing to receive book pitches from me. I will do everything in my power to help get you published if I believe it is possible. If you decide to self-publish, I have extensive experience in self-publishing and will do my best to advise you as regards marketing.

All copyrights are handed to you on completion of the work and final payment. I do not require my name on your book.

I specialize in narrative and creative non-fiction, doing my best to interweave powerful emotional beats into any story I am involved in.

ROI is always at the front of my mind for your book. I will work with you to figure out the best way to achieve that for your particular book. (Hint: Book sales are not the only way to achieve ROI for a book. Books are powerful marketing tools.)

All my prices are fixed. All work is conducted in three phases. You do not need to commit to the entire project but only to each phase. Every phase ends with a deliverable that you can take away and finish on your own or give to another ghostwriter to finish off if you feel our relationship is not working out for you.

I offer as many initial discovery calls as needed to learn about your project and answer any and all of your questions before preparing the quote.

I write in US, UK, and South African English.
