Overview

Under my own name I’ve published fiction, book reviews, and features. As a ghostwriter I’ve co-written a book about investing geared toward Millennials; reviewed business books about the changing nature of work; interviewed Twitter co-founder Biz Stone; summarized medical studies; written a paranormal romance novella; and created taglines for a new restaurant. I have edited and critiqued fiction and nonfiction manuscripts; crafted grant proposals for a community nonprofit arts initiative; and helped high school students write a book.

I believe every project has a core narrative: one which is its spine, muscle, and heart. My first job is to find that narrative, simplify it, streamline it, polish it. That initial process (which often resembles an archeological dig) usually involves interviewing the client, looking at any rough writing they've produced (the rougher the better), or both. Then I build upward and outward from that core. This approach not only ensures that I capture the essence of the project, but that I am true to the client's own unique voice.

Nest eggs and home values plummeted in value. Millennials just starting out entered the tightest job market in years. The economy has since recovered, but not as robustly as we would all like.

Working with Scott Doyle 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.
