Philip Whiteley - Ghostwriter

Ampthill, United Kingdom

Experienced ghostwriter, author. Ghosting/editorial consulting projects include major books on eurozone and an industrial illness scandal.

Overview

I am an experienced author of non-fiction and fiction. I have ghosted several books and major reports, on business and current affairs. My first novel Close of Play was shortlisted for the People's Book Prize 2015. I have written or co-authored eight business books, and in my editing and ghostwriting work my business clients have found it valuable to have a partner with experience in the field. I am a Spanish speaker, with considerable international experience, and I am able to empathise with those of my clients for whom English is their second language. All of my ghostwritten and edited books have been extremely well received. The Management Shift by Vlatka Hlupic, was shortlisted for the CMI Management Book of the Year.

"I stood, entranced, holding the card as I re-read it and gently traced my forefinger over the signature, enchanted at receiving such a rare gift. For a brief, beautiful moment I imagined being there with her, walking on the bleak sandy beach, shaking the sand out of our walking boots and tidying our tousled hair. The sensation disappeared rapidly and all I had was the card, which I placed on ... read more
