Jamie McGillian – Ghostwriter

I am an expert on children's books and educational resources.


I am an international author. My books have been translated to Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Portugese, French, and German. With almost 20 years of experience, I am the author of more than 25 books for young readers, including the highly-acclaimed Kids'Money Book (Sterling, 2016). I have worked as an editor and writer at Sesame Workshop for nearly a decade. In addition, I have worked at Scholastic, Macmillan, Weekly Reader, and Reader's Digest, just to name a few! In addition to being a freelance writer now, I teach creative arts to young children. My passion is writing books that help young readers strengthen their social and emotional muscles.

I am easy to work with and I have big ideas if you want to hear them. I am a fast writer once I see the big picture.
