Many of the memoirs, biographies, or autobiographies on bestseller shelves and lists are actually written by ghostwriters. These anonymous professionals work closely with the credited author of a memoir, ensuring that their client’s voice carries over into a manuscript, sharing their life story in an attention-grabbing way.
A ghostwriter is not the same as an editor, who can present suggestions to you without any input. Hiring a memoir ghostwriter is much more collaborative work: for someone to be able to tell your story, you’ll have to provide them with answers to a number of questions about your life and personal path. To be able to speak in your true voice, a memoir ghostwriter needs access to information about your emotions, thoughts, and feelings relating your experiences, as well as details about specific events in your past and how they affected you. Especially in the case of autobiographies, it’s important to include first-hand experiences and reflections in your book, to increase the authenticity of your narrative.
