Overview

PROFESSIONAL GHOSTWRITER 

A SEASONED WRITER OF 20+ YEARS WITH EIGHT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERS TO MY CREDIT, I have extensive knowledge and experience in the publishing industry. My early training as an entertainment editor and journalist has given me a unique understanding of the industry, and an excellent rapport with managers, agents and publicists. Celebrities trust me to write their books. 

MY EDITORIAL EXPERTISE includes helming the launch of the first celebrity lifestyle weekly, Life & Style, as its founding editor in chief. I have also edited and generated original content for, as well as written dozens of cover interviews and features for InStyle, McCall’s, Martha Stewart Weddings, and A&E Biography. 

MY STRENGTH AS A COLLABORATOR lies in my ability to “channel” my client’s voice and bring it to the printed page. I enjoy helping each individual through the process, and making the experience exciting, cathartic, rewarding and above all, smooth and easy. Whether it’s penning an emotional memoir, or packaging a lifestyle guide chock-full of tips and how-tos, my clients are always happy with the result.
