I'm a ghostwriter, "deep ghost," book doctor, developmental editor and all-around collaborator looking for projects that matter. Projects that make a contribution, whether it’s to enlighten or to entertain. I've worked in a broad range of subject areas, for self-publication, partnership publication and traditional publication (Rodale, Wiley, Hachette, etc), and I strive to become an expert on whatever I'm writing about. I can translate complex information for a mass-market audience, and I can organize reams of information into a smooth-flowing narrative. But maybe my highest recommendation is my respect for an author's voice and my ability to inhabit it the same way a good actor disappears into a role. The authors’ voices that have crowded my head for decades as a reader and an editor have helped me to acquire an ear for the nuances that go into each writer’s unique voice. And if you haven’t found yours yet, rest assured that we will.
My mission is to make authors look good in their efforts to add something of value to the world. And I don’t do it by re-creating their voices in the image of my own. I do it by leading them to those voices. We all have the capacity to tell a story—putting it on paper is just a matter of using the right tools. After thirty years of writing and editing experience, I have a well-stocked toolshed, and I’m happy to share.
