Joel Canfield – Ghostwriter

I've been ghostwriting for about 12 years, helping clients with books and screenplays. I currently ghostwrite for Forbes Books.


Hi there. Over the years, I've been a VP at an entertainment company, a documentary producer and the president of a New Zealand baseball club. Primarily, however, I've been a writer. I've been ghostwriting for 12 years, I've written four well-received novels and, with my wife Lisa, I've written five screenplays for TV-movies that have been produced.

So what can I do for you? What I've done for my many other clients. I've helped a lot of CEOs write their books, so I understand business writing. But I've also ghosted for criminals, pro athletes, and even a blind veteran who kayaked his way on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon (he had his old elementary school teacher read it for him). In addition, I've helped a few clients complete screenplays of their own, one of which may end up as a Netflix project. Bottom line? I know how to tell a story in an entertaining way, while, at the same time, conveying the information you want to bring to the reader's attention. I'm also fun at parties. Please feel free to reach out for a free consultation.
