Overview

I'm an experienced, professional writer/ghostwriter of non-fiction: business books, company history, executive memoir and personal memoir. I've been writing professionally for 10 years, following a 20-year career in industry as a manager and consultant. I've co-authored two trade-published books and 15 self-published books for clients. I've also self-published two books of my own. I pride myself on making complex topics and stories into accessible, readable tales. I also assist many of my clients with management of the self-publishing process.
Please be aware that my fees reflect the fact that I am an experienced and professional writer who produces high quality, publishable work. In addition, you should understand that writing a book requires a substantial amount of work and you will not get a quality job by opting for the cheapest option. My fees are determined on a project-by-project basis, but as a ballpark indication, manuscript rewrites of approx 30 to 40,000 words start at around $9000 and full book ghostwriting of the same length starts at about $24,000.
