Nicki Weisensee Egan - Ghostwriter

Royersford, PA, United States

I am an award-winning investigative journalist and former People senior writer with 28 years experience working full time in the industry.


I'm an investigative journalist and former People magazine senior writer and editor who specializes in getting exclusive interviews on some of the nation's most high-profile crime, medical, human-interest and political stories. I know how to take complex subjects and make them readable and how to edit in a way that retains the author's unique writing voice. I have a master's degree in criminal justice and I know how to do the research to gain knowledge of an issue I don't know much about. I am a voracious reader and nothing would make me happier than to edit and write books of my own.
