Overview

I can offer thirty plus years of ghostwriting and editing fiction and nonfiction, including memoirs, business books, and thrillers. My business contact and acumen was honed when I reported on local industry for an area newspaper, and then became the Chicago correspondent for two nationally distributed New York trade publications. Then freelancing, I ghostwrote and edited a book on a philosophy of business, published by Amazon. My ghostwritten memoirs include a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright, and a prominent real estate figure. A book on grief recovery is a self-help I ghosted as well. Among the works that I have developmentally edited is a psychological thriller. In addition, I have recently authored a thriller, and am halfway through its sequel. A short story of mine was included in an anthology published and distributed in the U.S. and in Europe. I will also assist a client if help with a book proposal is needed.

Currently freelance ghostwriter, author, and editor.
Business writer/Reporter: Skokie News, Skokie, IL. Wrote industry articles, profiles, and news.
Chicago correspondent: Office World News and Electronics Retailing, two nationally distributed New York dealer-oriented trade magazines. Reported and wrote business and industry articles.
