Here's a recent review from my client: "Overall, I am pleased with the way you have captured my voice. A job well done !!!! You are easy to work with and have a special writing gift. I am grateful !"

This is the same feeling I hope to leave with you if you get a chance to work together.

But first, a little about me:

I'm a ghostwriter who's worked with bestselling authors and publishers to write biographies, Christian nonfiction, sociology, business management, and self-improvement books. And I'll love to work with you.

As a journalist, I know how to ask the important questions that bring the best stories out of you. My goal is to make your voice heard through words on paper. Through a tailored process, I will build on your book idea, create a detailed outline and work with you to develop an excellent manuscript.

The most impactful stories tend to be the most insightful. So, as a ghostwriter, with a type 5 (enneagram) personality, I'll approach your project with a deep sense of curiosity. I'lll be looking to pique your readers' interest so your book can leave them with a memorable experience.

With that said, I hope you'll consider sending me a request. I'll love to learn about your project.


Reviews for #1 Amazon Bestsellers I've worked on:

BE UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOU: A Self Love Guide for Women of Color by Adeline Bird

"I own 999 self-help books and hesitated to get this one. This book is deeper and more meaningful. An immediate read and impossible to put down. Also impossible to not apply lessons and information."


"Very well-researched information that rings very true to anyone who has been watching the state of the world and has an open mind and can think "out of the box".
