Jim Sloan – Ghostwriter

I've worked on a variety of books, from personal finance to fiction, health, history, technology, and business leadership.


I'm an experienced book coach and ghostwriter, with more than thirty books under my belt. I've worked with lawyers, doctors, CEOs, entrepreneurs, professional athletes, mob bosses, philanthropists, and nonprofit executives who are thought leaders in their fields.

As your writing partner, you'll find that I'm inquisitive and eager to capture your knowledge and insight. I'll help you structure your book and put it in the right context, ensuring that it hits your target audience with a clear, motivating message. I provide drafts and work together to create a final, polished manuscript ready for publication. I'm a curious, supportive, and self-assured collaborator.
