Ghostwriting Services

Ghostwriters Write A Story You Want to Read

I do not offer a one size fits all ghostwriting services. I believe that each project and client comes with a different set of needs.

My preferred practice is to design a one-of-a-kind plan for ghostwriting services that will help you finish your project and that suits your specific vision.

Are you ready to finally get your story out into the world? I provide services that assist in all aspects of the writing, production or publishing process.

Core Ghostwriting Services Include

*Story development
*Manuscript outlining

*Adaptation of fiction to screenplay (and vice versa)

Have you already started but are unsure where to go next?

*Self-publishing of family and business books
*Development and content editing
*Manuscript consultation
*Book proposals
*Query letters
*Author platform

Why Would You Ghostwrite, Instead of Write Your Own Book?

This is great question, one I end up answered quite often.

My first response is usually, what do you mean, “instead”? In addition to working as an editor and ghostwriter, I write and publish fiction at

That doesn’t answer why I’m here offering ghostwriting services though.

The deeper answer is, I love story. It is an obsession, a core aspect of my being. Since working as a newspaper and magazine editor, I have really enjoyed the process of breaking and developing story ideas. Even if I wasn’t writing the particular story, I enjoyed developing it.

As a ghostwriter, I am lucky enough to get the best of both worlds.

Rates For Ghostwriting Services

I don’t publish a rate sheet. Some ghostwriters do but I have never seen the point. Instead of a rate sheet, I offer a free consultation to anyone who contacts me.

I am a professional writer. What does do I mean by professional?

By professional writer, I  mean that I cannot write your book simply for credit. Nor will I take a share of profits in lieu of payment.

Professional ghostwriters get paid for their writing services.

Just like one-of-a-kind plans for ghostwriting services, I do offer customer specific payment plans. Get in touch and during our free consultation, we can come up with something to together that fits your budget.

If we find that I am too expensive, I work with a team of professional writers and editors who may be more suited to where you are.


My clients have gone onto success in self-publishing and traditional markets. My screenplays are award winning and have successfully sold on the spec market.
One of my clients parlayed his personal story into a two-season TV deal with A&E.

This kind of opportunity can be yours and it is only a click away.
