Barry Fox – Ghostwriter

New York Times bestselling ghostwriter and author of memoirs and books on business, history, politics, and art.


I am a ghostwriter/author of memoirs, business books, and works of politics, history, and art. My resume includes New York Times bestsellers, international bestsellers, and books written specifically for family or business purposes.

My work has been published by Simon & Schuster, St. Martins, HarperCollins, LittleBrown, Broadway Books, Warner Books, and other major publishers.

Think of me as your “confidential pen” who will turn your ideas and experiences into an exciting, touching, thought-provoking book.

I offer bespoke, premium services tailored to your needs, and expect to spend a lot of time working with you on your book.

Here is what some of my clients and VIP editors at New York publishing houses have said about working with me:

Bruce Krysiak, former COO of Toys “R” Us -
"I was impressed by Barry's ability to challenge me creatively and sharpen my focus...Working with Barry became a journey of self-discovery, resulting in a much better book than I ever could have written on my own."

Steven Friedman, Vice Chairman & CEO of United Steel Service -
"He has an uncanny ability to understand what’s important and what’s not; to make you think more deeply about your life and come up with insights you didn’t know you had; and to transform your stories, ideas and feelings into writing that is not only beautiful but highly readable."

Jesmane Boggenpoel, former Head of Business Engagement, Africa, World Economic Forum -
"Barry showed an amazing ability to grasp my vision, then creatively and almost supernaturally produce it."

Shaun Connell, Founder of the Conservative Institute -
"Barry’s writing, editorial, and research work greatly transformed my project. We were able to take it to levels I hadn’t imagined possible. I can’t wait to work with him on the next venture."

Mitch Wasden, CEO of OHSU Healthcare -
"Barry has the unique ability of ensuring that a writer’s collection of thoughts can be weaved together with stories, images, and frameworks into one well thought out whole."

"You’ve done a fantastic job here. The program is very clear, the writing is engaging, and the promise of helping people is evident on every page. There is very little to do editorially on this – thank you!"

Fred Hills, VP & Senior Editor, Simon & Schuster -
"Just a note to say how pleased I am with the job you did... Rarely do I receive the draft of a manuscript in nearly perfect condition… Congratulations on a superb job."
