Home Of Innovative Ghostwriting & Editing Solutions



ghostwriter services, portland oregonDo you have a story that you need to tell? I believe everyone has at least one book they would love to write and get out into the world.

If you’re like most people, however, something always seems to get in the way of sitting down to actually write that story. Whether that obstacle is time, or not knowing exactly where to start, barriers tend to arise when we sit down to put inspiration to the page.

If that sounds like you, let me ask you a question: why not hire a ghostwriter? Using professional ghostwriting services can be a great way to go from frustrated to finished manuscript in no time at all. Whether your idea is fiction or nonfiction, working with a ghostwriter can change everything.

Over the last fifteen years, I have provided high-quality ghostwriting services to a diverse array of clients across the world. I have worked with people from every walk of life on a wide assortment of interesting projects ranging from non-fiction and memoir, to fiction and screenplays. Books I have ghostwritten have been published by major publishers and gone on to receive critical acclaim. Many of the screenplays I have written for clients have been optioned by producers and eventually produced.

Not only are ghostwriting services a good choice to help you get your story written. They are a first step on the road to reaching your audience.

Some clients I encounter aren’t sure exactly what shape their story will take. They ask themselves, should my story be a novel? Or is it more of a screenplay? Would my story work better as a memoir?

These are common questions. Every writer, regardless of experience, asks these at some point.

As a professional ghostwriter, I am capable of planning and writing a manuscript that captures your voice and vision, ensuring that your book sounds like you. I have written screenplays in all major genres, from dramas to comedies to action and adventure.

The best part for many prospective clients is the potential low time commitment involved. Once we start working together, I do all of the writing.

In addition to providing ghostwriting services, I also work as a developmental editor. As an editor, I work to strengthen and form an already written manuscript. I give clients notes on critical elements like plot and character that help them take their manuscript to the next level.
