Ken Scott – Ghostwriter

Prolific ghostwriter of 40 published books, translated into over a dozen languages. Looking for potential best selling books.

Overview

I am a Sunday Times Top Ten best-selling author and seasoned ghostwriter, with a professional career spanning 16 years. I specialise in a wide array of genres, from historical memoirs and biographies to narratives covering sensitive topics such as domestic and child abuse, human trafficking, and war and conflict. I have consistently delivered compelling and impactful stories.

My commitment to excellence is exemplified by my willingness to go the extra mile for clients. Whether collaborating via Zoom, traveling to meet clients personally, or working through emails and hard copy notes, I prioritise adaptability to cater to individual preferences. Noteworthy is my dedication, having traveled as far as Costa Rica to spend time working closely with a client, resulting in the successful publication of her book several months later.

In my extensive career, I've collaborated with some of the UK's best-selling authors, contributing to their literary success. Furthermore, my work has earned recognition, with a Booker Prize Entry and a book shortlisted for the prestigious Hemingway Book Award.

My accomplishments extend to various successful projects completed on the Reedsy platform, underscoring my proficiency and credibility in the field of ghostwriting. With a proven track record, I continue to bring stories to life with finesse and dedication.

I establish publishing agreements before initiating any of my book projects. This meticulous approach ensures a clear and structured framework for collaboration, setting forth the terms and expectations that govern our professional relationship from the outset.

Ken is very easy to talk to. We have had many video calls, and I always come away with useful tips on gathering all the information I have together so that, with his help, we can write this biography. (I could not do it without him) Sometimes, it feels like a huge endeavour, but I am more inspired after each call. I am also impressed with all the extra information Ken has researched and bee...

Ken has been extremely enthusiastic about my project from the very beginning and our frequent Zoom meetings have been constructive and productive. And good fun! Having started off as a ghost-writer, by mutual agreement we reshuffled our roles and Ken willingly took on the role of a book coach which allowed me to take more responsibility for writing. This revised partnership has worked very well...
