Overview

Having worked in marketing and social media for 20 years, I understand the world of business. I also have an uncanny knack for capturing your voice when I write on your behalf, and do this by listening to you carefully when you speak, immersing myself in your professional world. One of my clients recently said: ‘My book sounds just like ME!’

My combination of marketing expertise and writing skills is a powerful combination when it comes to your book. I’ll make sure it achieves what it needs to for your business, basing it on the right strategy – the one that will skyrocket your reputation – and delivering transformational value to your readers. You can be sure it will leave its footprint on your industry.

I’ve ghosted a dozen books (and counting) on topics as diverse as phobias, CVs, recruitment, HR, service design, entrepreneurship, and IVF. They range from how-to guides, to thought-leadership books, and to autobiographies. Some have launched and stayed as bestsellers, and also been accepted by publishers such as Penguin Random House and Kogan Page.

What’s more, half of my clients have asked me to ghostwrite their next book – that’s not bad going!

In addition to ghostwriting your whole book I can create your publishers’ proposal. My work as a judge at two Business Book Awards has given me a deep understanding of what publishers are looking for in a book, and previous proposals of mine have been accepted by Penguin Random House.

If you want to understand my bottom-up philosophy on starting the book that turns you into a sought-after expert, my Amazon e-book, The Business Book Outline Builder, gives you 5 easy steps to creating the perfect outline.

I've included a selection of my ghostwritten books in my portfolio here, as well as my own e-book. I can supply writing samples on request.
