Nick Brown – Ghostwriter

Professional novelist and ghost, specialising in historical fiction, fantasy and science fiction. Author of the 'Agent of Rome' series.


The sixth book in the 'Agent of Rome' series, 'The Earthly Gods', was described by The Times as 'gripping' and by The Sunday Express as an 'entertaining adventure'.

In recent years, I have ghosted eight novels for clients (three historical fiction, three sci-fi, two fantasy). In total, I have completed over two hundred and fifty projects for clients as a freelance writer. During my career, I have taken sixteen novels through every stage: from plotting and character development to formatting and copy-editing. I specialize in writing action and creating compelling twists and turns. All my work contains believable, rounded characters and a touch of humour. I usually draft at least eight times to ensure my prose is smooth, powerful and dynamic.

As a former teacher, I am an enthusiastic and supportive colleague. I take pride in every project and have never missed a deadline. I look forward to hearing from authors interested in collaboration.

Feedback from a client for whom I 'ghosted' a 100,000 word historical epic:

'When I set out to write my novel, I knew I needed someone with a distinct voice and someone whom could bring life to long lost souls. The story itself is a historical fiction, re-lived through the lives of extraordinary people. Nick was an absolutely perfect choice for this project. He thoroughly understood the requirements and worked hand in hand to help me realize my ideas.' - Josh C.

Feedback from a client for whom I ‘ghosted’ a 90,000 word fantasy novel:

‘Nick has been great all the way through our project. He's brought to life the characters and world that I have been developing in my mind for almost a decade and I couldn't be happier. He's been a great tutor along the way and I've picked up a lot of writing knowledge. A clear communicator and always delivers on time.10/10.’

In short, a very positive experience. This venture had been on my mind for several years. After several solo attempts, I realised that I needed the assistance of a professional writer to get to get it finished. Having sounded out a few potential project partners, Nick quickly stood out as the right fit for me. From our initial discussions through to the finished novel, everything went well. ...

I’m a first time author and worked with Nick on my historical novel. Nick was very thorough. He reviewed my manuscript and gave me feedback on each page. He also pointed out ways to achieve success with my novel. His work was prompt and on point. I highly recommend Nick.
