Scott Doyle – Ghostwriter

Be it fiction or memoir or idea-driven nonfiction, a strong narrative sets great books apart. Stories shape the world. Let me shape yours.


Fiction. Self-help and wellness. Health equity. Business leadership. The science of "flow" and peak performance. Diversity. Decisionmaking. Habit and routines. These are some of the topics on which I've collaborated with clients—in books, blogs, Forbes articles, and more.

Every project has a core narrative—its spine, muscle, and heart. My first job is to find that narrative, simplify it, streamline it, polish it. Then, working closely with the client, I build upward and outward from that core. This approach not only ensures that I capture the essence of the project, but am true to the client's own unique voice and vision.


“Scott doesn’t just write. He partners with you and really owns the project as though it were his own. He offers beautiful writing and excellent insight.” Priya Nalkur, Founder, The RoundTable Institute

“Scott's ability to weave idea-driven nonfiction with narrative in a creative way makes for a compelling and engaging read. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with him should consider themselves very fortunate.” Naz Beheshti, Forbes contributor, and author of Pause. Breathe. Choose.

“Scott brings clarity to a wide range of issues, consistently framing them in surprising and revealing ways.” Shannon Berning, Wharton School Press

Every project begins with a period of trying to align expectations to reach a common vision and to establish requirements to position everyone involved for success; especially with complicated, diverse, and nuanced ideas. Scott patiently and respectfully worked through this process so that we were able to jointly commit to a full book manuscript.

Working with Scott was beyond remarkable. The sincerity and passion he puts into the project is something I have never witnessed before. If you want someone who will be hand in glove with you from the very moment you begin writing, look no further. He is so personally invested in each project, it is humbling. I would recommend him a hundred times over.
