John Lynch

John Lynch – Ghostwriter

Ghost writer since 1989 of more than 60 books, with several climbing high in the charts, two made into movies and three optioned

Overview

You've got a story to tell and you need someone to tell it. I'm glad we've met - telling other people's stories in a way that people will want to read them is what I do.


My breakthrough year was 1989 when I sold my first book, my first article and my first short story . I signed my first ghost writing contract the following year. Since then I've ghost written more than 60 full length fiction and non-fiction books published with other people's names on the cover and 9 of my own. Some of those ghosted books have spent weeks in the Top 10 of Amazon charts and 5 have been optioned for movies/TV. I also write scripts for YouTube videos. Seven years in North America means I write American English as fluently as the British kind.


THINGS CLIENTS HAVE SAID ABOUT MY WORK:

I'd never contemplated using a ghost writer. I felt sure I had a great book idea, but didn't have the first idea how to write it. I did an internet search on a whim one day and found Reedsy. I registered and based on my book idea and Reedsy's selection process, found John . John has been a pleasure to work with, from start to finish. He has guided, mentored, and educated me in the role of the ghost writer, coaxing the story that was in my head out, and into his head. The result is almost the story I visualized.... but better. Thank you so much John!


John, a gifted wordsmith was and is just amazing to work with! He is diligent, goal oriented and always strives to deliver the best possible work. I highly recommend John as a collaborator. Cheers and Thanks !!!


John has a great way of pulling the story out of you. He made the process easy and exciting.


Truly excellent writer and a pleasure to work with. Prompt and highly professional. Will definitely work with again.


John edited and proofed my book and ghostwrote a few chapters. He did his edits at an extreme level of detail. Chapters he added perfectly picked up on what's missing and followed the tone and the message of the book. John added lots of value to the book. And I am now in trouble - I am not sure I would dare to publish anything in the future without John looking it over.


John was a pleasure to work with. He doctored my book into tip top shape. Very professional. My highest recommendations.

I read books on Campbell's Hero Journey, Snowflake Method, books on show don't tell, how to write great dialogue, in addition to having already read Elements of Style and On Writing Well twice. Bottom line: It didn't matter. Writing is a craft that takes years of practice to produce something exceptional. I had a great story to tell. My manuscript was okay, but not at the level that would get...

Thanks, JB. I enjoyed working on this - you had a great story to tell and, between us, I think we have told it.

John doesn't mumble his words. He's one tough and honest man to work with, who combines his extensive knowledge with a sensitivity to detail and a razor sharp judgement. It was not always easy and it shouldn't be. Trust grew on the tree of a direct exchange of values and professionalism. I'd work with John anytime again. Consider yourself lucky you to get him to support your project.

It works both ways, Dennis. I wish all authors communicated as well as you do.
