Peter Gerardo – Ghostwriter

Ghostwriter with four decades of experience working with individuals, executives, business owners, and academics on 40+ books.


I'm a seasoned journalist (former New York Times reporter) and ghostwriter with 42 years of experience.

I’ve ghostwritten more than 40 books, as well as hundreds of thought leadership articles, on a wide range of topics. My specialties are books and articles about business and innovation, leadership, and self-help.

Recent books include: "Digital Customer Success," written for the CEO and CCO of the leading Customer Success software maker, and slated for publication by John Wiley & Sons in May 2024; “Demystifying Corporate America,” a business memoir written for a Citigroup executive; and “ALIEN Thinking: The Unconventional Path to Breakthrough Ideas,” written for an academic team from IMD Business School and published by Hachette Book Group in 2021.

Ghostwritten articles have appeared in The New York Times, CMSWire, Entrepreneur, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Inc. Magazine, MIT-Sloan Management Review, and TechCrunch.

When you hire me, you're not simply hiring a skilled researcher, interviewer, and ghostwriter, but a creative problem-solver and strategist who knows how to achieve your larger goals by artfully conveying the right messages to the right target audiences.
