Emma Murray - Ghostwriter

London, United Kingdom

Ghostwriter and author (business management, higher education, psychology) with over 15 years' experience working with professional clients.

Overview

Firstly, many thanks for reviewing my profile. I am an author and ghostwriter, specialising in Psychology, Business, and Higher Education. I work with MDs, entrepreneurs, management consultants, psychologists and university professors to help create written works designed to enhance reputations, build connections and generate wider interest.
I started my own writing business over 10 years ago following a long career as a marketing executive in investment banking and it has given me the experience and drive to work with other professionals on their writing projects.
Writing isn’t easy – it takes a lot of hard work and constant practice, and like anything worthwhile, you need to love it in order to do it well.
For professionals, writing is even harder because of busy work pressures and schedules.
Getting help is the first step to finally articulating what has been in your head for months or possibly years.
Nothing quite beats the satisfaction of seeing your own thoughts and philosophies in black and white.I have collaborated on many ghostwriting projects (books, articles etc.) with some very interesting people. For confidentiality reasons, I am unable to disclose the names of some of my clients (many of whom are in the public eye) , but I am permitted to share the following list with you:Mike O’ Toole, MD, Morgan StanleyBrad Borkan, SAP Software SolutionsJason Manolopoulos, CIO, Dromeus CapitalLewis Gordon Pugh, Maritime LawyerDr Michael Sinclair, City psychologistDavid Taransaud, psychotherapistGraham Johnson, journalist and authorHeidi Neck, professor of Entrepreneurial Studies, Babson College, Boston.Chris Neck, professor of Management, Arizona State University.Jeff Houghton, professor of Management, West Virginia University.Publishers I have worked with include: SAGE, Wiley, Wiley-Capstone, How To Books, Karnac, Arcturus, and Crimson.I write in both US English and UK English.As an author, my current projects include academic texts: Management (Wiley 2016); and Entrepreneurship (Sage 2017).
