Tobi Nifesi – Ghostwriter

Vancouver-based ghostwriter, editor, and book coach helping leaders, founders, and coaches write memoirs, biographies, and nonfiction.


Whether you're a leader, founder, or coach looking to share your insights or a passionate individual with a story to tell, I've got you covered.

I've worked on multiple prescriptive memoirs, guides, business nonfiction, exposés, and books that raise awareness about important issues.

These works have garnered attention and praise, attained bestselling status, and featured in major publications and outlets such as The Huffington Post, The Globe and Mail, CBC, etc.


I started my writing career as a journalist covering arts, culture, and entrepreneurship. However, it was during my time as a publishing consultant that I realized the challenges faced by new authors, which led me to become a ghostwriter.

As your ghostwriter, my goal is to capture your voice, understand your story and weave it into a compelling narrative that resonates with readers. Whatever your style, tone, or beliefs, I can make it work and get you a manuscript properly articulating your ideas.

Whether you already have notes, rough drafts, or an outline, I'll meet you where you are and get you to the finish line.


If you're not interested in a ghostwriting service, I can also work with you as a book coach, ensuring that you have all the information and guidance needed to conceptualize your ideas, write well and create a publishable, marketable manuscript.

If you're trying to attract traditional publishers, I'll do the dirty work of putting together an industry-standard book proposal to position you for success.

I'm an active member of the Federation of BC Writers and the Association of Ghostwriters. I'm always happy to leverage my writing, editorial, and publishing network to get you the support you need as you move along your authorship and publishing journey.


On a personal note, I've also authored three psychological thrillers that have been used as case studies in local and national social awareness campaigns. These novellas tackle sensitive topics like domestic violence, endometriosis, suicide, and bystander apathy, sparking crucial conversations.

When I'm not working on a psychological thriller or a client's project, you could find me strumming my acoustic guitar to a track by Linkin Park or Vance Joy, much to the delight of my 19-months old daughter.


One more thing: I'm not just another writer-for-hire. This is my business, and I treat every project with the utmost level of professionalism. When we have a contract, I stick to the terms. I deliver work as agreed. I'm critical and always open to critique. I want to have fun and share great conversations with my clients. Ultimately, I want each project I work on to get to the finish line.
