Ruby Peru - Ghostwriter

I'm a ghostwriter and editor specializing in memoir, known for producing humorous work by ensuring a book has a unique, strong voice.

Overview

My work, either as ghostwriter or editor, ensures your book sounds like you, enhanced. Your voice will shine through the work and stamp it with your unique sense of humor, viewpoint, and history. I specialize in memoir, but have ghostwritten books on subjects as diverse as baseball coaching, neuroscience, cults, and even a heist novel. Personally, I have a novel on bookstore shelves and a four-book memoir co-written with a client, currently seeking publication.

Work experience

ghostwriter

Self-employed
January, 2008 – Present (over 9 years)

I ghostwrite memoirs for select clients. I specialize in books of 240 pages, with an emphasis on a humorous voice. My experience includes many international clients from: South Sudan, Lebanon, Vietnam, and other far flung locations. I have written memoirs that are romances, that offer first-person accounts of political events, and that go deep inside cults. I travel for the work, when required. Most importantly, my clients are those who want a book that reads as compelling narrative nonfiction, with dialogue, suspense, and moment-by-moment storytelling, not the typical overview-of-a-life you get in a standard autobiography or memoir.
