J. E. Bright - Ghostwriter

New York, NY, United States

I'm a full-time freelance writer with more than 100 books published for children and young adults. Let's tell your story together.

Overview

Often at parties I'm told, "I've got a great idea for a children's book. All you'd have to do is write it." So here's your chance to hire me and make that happen.

I love writing exciting, fast-paced, inventive adventure fiction, particularly in the fantasy, science fiction, and super hero genres, but I'm equally as interested in family stories, friendship and romance, animals, historical events, and non-fiction researched facts.

Tell me about that amazing idea you've been nurturing as you fall asleep at night, echoing into your dreams. We'll work together to get it out of your head so it can live and exist on the page and in the world for everyone to enjoy.
