Work experience

Writer, editor, ghost

EricDalen.com

March, 2001 – Present (almost 16 years)

Offering confidential ghostwriting services to both first-time and established fiction authors, as well as editing and enhancement of existing manuscripts. I can work from outlines and character sketches, using your personalized voice and style to match the tone and design you are looking to achieve. For existing works, I can flesh out characterizations to bring them to life, deepen dialogue, streamline narratives, tighten plotlines, add humor where applicable, and inject suspense and tension.

Past work has been confidentially contracted, mostly for established authors who work under pen names, or who do not want it publically known someone else "assisted" on their creative work. I do not need nor expect co-writing status, bylines or acknowledgments -- I prefer to keep the "secret" between us. You come up with the idea, I put it on paper, and you get the credit.

Specialties: Mystery fiction, suspense fiction, general fiction, western fiction, thriller fiction, women's fiction, Christian fiction and Christian non-fiction.
