Overview

I have five published books to my name and have ghostwritten for many others.

Most recently, I completed a 30,000-word book for the CEO of a major international online platform that brings service providers together with potential clients.

Other ghostwriting work includes:

• First Clicks (how online entrepreneurs got started)

• The Millionaire's Mentor (why having the right mental attitude is crucial to financial success – written for a wealth management company) and

• Pride and Inspiration – (written for someone who was instrumental in London’s successful 2012 Olympics bid).

Given my marketing experience, I can also help with book promotions.

Having edited, for instance, the first published book of one of Europe’s leading business coaches I then went on to develop a promotional campaign for it. This involved writing her website, developing auto responder, sales letter and email series, as well as creating a social media presence for her. As a result, she became an ‘Amazon Bestseller’, going on to become a multi-award winning author.

I’ve a strong background writing on and about business and entrepreneurship – my ghostwriting speciality.

So among the five magazines I've edited are titles such as, Enterprise – a publication for owners of small- to medium-sized companies; and The Professional – a glossy magazine used for the Continuous Professional Development of those in marketing, accountancy and finance.
