Overview

I love when clients achieve their dreams (sometimes life-long) of writing a book, and helping them discover their voice and vision. Being a ghostwriter is a bit like being an actor, where you get inside someone's head and "become" that person on the page. To that end, I've been a doctor, professor, relationship expert, clergyman, executive image consultant, maternal fitness nurse, recovery expert and model. I specialize in self-help, health & wellbeing, and relationship topics, and I have collaborated/ghosted/written book proposals, manuscripts (traditional/self-published/hybrid), articles, and blogs. I've received several awards, including a Pulitzer Fellowship by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. My bylined articles have appeared in Woman's Day, Family Circle, Elle, Redbook, Scholastic and others. As a former book publicist and publishing event coordinator for an NPR affiliate, I've worked with such high-profile authors as Jodi Picoult, Anna Quindlen, Robin Roberts, Jane Pauley, Andy Borowitz, Mitch Albom, Dave Barry and others. Would like to work with you!
