Ghostwriting and Editorial Services
Ghostwriting and Editing Collaborations
I have a proven track record for delivering dynamic, marketable content for book and magazine publishers, literary agents, leading companies and executives, radio broadcasters, and individual authors.
As a solo writer, I write extensively about entertainment and media. As a freelance ghost writer and collaborative editor, however, I provide content for many genres, including memoirs/biographical projects, history, popular culture, current events, political commentary, business/how-to, narrative nonfiction, and some fiction. I work with a wide range of media outlets, from large publishing houses to Print on Demand companies.
I help clients develop their material into compelling, marketable books that capture their individual voice, personality and passion for their subject. As a memoir writer/editor, I am equally adept at capturing the voice of male and female authors, and am particularly drawn to stories about people who have overcome obstacles to achieve success in life and career.
My book collaborations include Voice of Reason by National Radio Hall of Fame nominee Ronn Owens; The Ethics of Star Trek, an engaging blend of pop culture and classic philosophy that I co-authored with Indiana State University professor Judith Barad; the memoirs Keep on Keeping On, Unfulfilled Dreams: The Story of a Father and Son, and Compromised: A True Story About Taking Back a Stolen Childhood; the business/how-to titles The Perpetual Paycheck and The Next Step in Successful Selling; and The Case of the Alliterative Attorney, a behind-the-scenes history of the Perry Mason television series.
I am also a successful book doctor, developmental editor, and consultant. I am recruited by literary agents, independent book publishers, and individual authors to advise on, polish, retool and, in some cases, rewrite book proposals and/or edit manuscripts and make them marketable for mainstream publication. My work in this capacity helped lead to the publication of such titles as The Ethics of Star Trek by Judith Barad, Ph.D.; Big Brown: The Untold Story of UPS by Greg Niemann; The Target, a political thriller by Bill Bowen; and Once Upon a Time: Elvis and Anita, the memoirs of recording artist Anita Wood, which I edited on behalf of the book’s author, Jonnita Brewer Barrett.
I have also written or edited hundreds of articles for print and online newspapers, magazines, custom publications, websites, and other media venues, including Columbia House Video Library. In addition, for four years I was copyeditor for an award-winning lifestyles and entertainment magazine, where I edited/rewrote articles for every department while upholding the publication’s high standards of excellence.
I also provide consultation to individual authors on areas related to writing and publishing, including advice on obtaining a literary agent; coaching; writing, editing and/or preparing query letters and query packages to potential agents or publishers; and consulting for those who may decide to self-publish. In some instances, I have helped authors line-edit and format their manuscripts for publication using print on demand platforms.
