Verified identity


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

As a journalist, I'm able to ask the right questions that bring the best stories out of authors. When I review our interview transcripts, I piece ideas together, search for patterns and fix plot holes to get your stories, drafts, and manuscripts ready for publication. Through a tailored process—from outlining, ghostwriting to formatting—I will build on your idea and creativity, embody your voice, ensure it can be heard through the pages.

The most impactful stories tend to be the most insightful. So, as a ghostwriter, with a type 5 (enneagram) personality, I approach each book project with a degree of curiosity. I'm always looking to engage your readers' interest and, through your book, give them a memorable reading 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".
