David Jahr, APR – Ghostwriter

Ghostwriter for five NY Times best-selling authors, including celebrity doctors, CEOs, and pastors -- reforming the mind, body and soul.


I'm a distinguished ghostwriter, public relations (PR) master and book publishing coach reforming health with the mind, body and soul. Since 2011, I've written with five New York Times best-selling authors, including celebrity doctors, CEOs, therapists, musicians, Christian pastors, and coaches to establish their brand, book and buzz.

My particular niche is the health and wellness sector, with clients such as neurologists, psychiatrists, cardiologists, addiction recovery and behavioral health experts. I also love writing memoirs and autobiographies, and on spiritual topics.

My process is collaborative and highly-personalized. After honing the vision and goal, we speak regularly on a recorded line so I can gather every nuance of the author's style. My particular strength is mimicking the author's voice in written form. To help save the author time, I'll research the relevant scientific studies, published reports and conduct other interviews, as necessary. Once we've crafted the manuscript, I'm often asked to help gather endorsements and reviews from noteworthy sources.

With more than 30 years experience in PR, I'm adept at seeing the big picture and how to position my client's book in the marketplace. While many of my clients prefer to self-publish, others have attracted traditional publishing contracts from book proposals. My marketing background and ghostwriting combine to make compelling book proposals that can attract attention from agents and publishers.

Ghostwriting and coaching authors is a rewarding experience for both the client and I, which has led to many valuable relationships I cherish.
