It is often said that everyone has a book in them. This is probably true and the purpose of this site is to help you find it.
For people working on a novel, biography or screenplay, or those preparing submissions for publishers or production companies, what a ghost-writer brings to the project is the 'magic' demanded in this highly-competitive market.
Four in ten successful books have made use of a ghostwriter. You may get only one chance. A professional writer can help you make the most of it.
During the past two decades I have ghosted numerous books and, as an editor, guided many writers to publication. Here are a few:
Today I'm Alice, Alice Jamieson's memoir of Multiple Personality Disorder. The book spent 7 weeks in the Sunday Times best-seller lists and I was described by Penny Wark of The Times as 'the best ghostwriter in the UK.'
Fatwa: Living With A Death Threat, Jacky Trevane's flight across the desert with two children to escape an abusive husband. The book has been translated into 10 European languages and sold almost 500,000 copies.
Sex, Surrealism, Dali and Me, the twin biographies of the surrealist painter and his long-time aide, Carlos Lozano. Reaching No. 9 in the Spanish best-seller lists, the book was the subject of the documentary, The Dali Triangle.
Making A Killing and the WH Smith top ten seller, Escape From Baghdad, two military memoirs written with former infantry captain James Ashcroft. Widely reviewed, Andy Martin, wrote in The Daily Telegraph: ‘Ashcroft must have formed a good working alliance with ghost writer Clifford Thurlow...because this diary of death and destruction radiates not just personality but that illusive, lyrical honesty the existentialists used to call authenticity.'
Many books fail on the point of succeeding. What a ghost-writer can do is help make a book everything it can be.
