What is ghostwriting?

Someone with a great idea or a powerful story (that’s you) partners with a talented writer (that’s me) to produce an excellent book. You bring the idea, the voice, and the message. I brings skills and knowledge about writing and publishing to best serve your vision.

In other words, we both get to do work we are passionate about!

You tell your story while continuing to live your story.

I help you tell that story in a way that will change lives through business development, fostering a legacy, or contributing to a community.

My Process

Step One: Finding Clarity

This includes defining audience, market research, discovering your voice and style, and developing a detailed chapter by chapter outline.

Step Two: Writing

Weekly Zoom calls and shared Google docs ensure the book’s collaborative nature as we steadily move toward finished product together.

Step Three: Editing

Throughout the writing period, editing has been ongoing but at this stage, I hand the manuscript to my trusted editor who will provide valuable feedback and ensure the book is ready for launching into the world.

Optional Step Four: Publishing Coach
