Personal Ghostwriting And Book Projects

A special holiday, birthday or anniversary is on the horizon, and you want to give your loved ones a one-of-a-kind gift.


You’ve had a fascinating, eventful life—in business, politics, academia, non-profits, or something else. You’ve always said you would like to write a book about it, but you’re just not sure how to get started on such a large, demanding project.


You find genealogy captivating and long to discover the characters, diverse places, ordinary and historical events that made up your ancestor’s lives. You’d love to compile those discoveries and write a book detailing your origins.


You’ve always wanted to collect your grandmother’s stories and sayings. A book — in her voice and her words — would make a beautiful keepsake for the whole family.


These are just a few of the many reasons you might want to hire a ghostwriter to produce a story that’s significant—for you, those you love, or for the wider audience you hope to reach.

Our clients come to us with a very specific set of goals and concerns. You may have a specific timeframe for completing the project, for example, or key themes you want to highlight.
