Melanie Hunter - Ghostwriter

Tulsa, OK, USA

Writer, ghostwriter, editor: over many years, I have worn many hats--fiction, non-fiction, academic, and beyond--and I enjoy all of them.

I have worked on dozens of ghostwriting projects, from self-help to memoir to cookbooks to how-to projects (who knew an entire book on whittling projects was possible? It is!). I am particularly interested and well-versed in food-related topics, literature and history, and various self-help genres. I've written a series on mythology, several books on gardening and cooking (from organic gardening to Wiccan crystal gardens to Korean cookbooks to specialized diet and equipment guides), travel guides, and books on meditation, yoga, and philosophies both Eastern and Western. I have also edited for local magazines, produced newsletters and worked on marketing campaigns, and built web sites. I am truly an omnivorous reader, traveler, writer, and editor!

I have also worked in academia, publishing my own researched and peer-reviewed material and editing for academic journals and other forums. I am currently producing literary guides for secondary- and college-age students, among my many projects.
