The moving finger writes; and, having writ, moves on: nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.
– Omar Khayyám

Ghostwriting, Developmental Editing and Publishing Consultation

Authoring a book can position you as an industry leader and promote your brand. Books are the ultimate business card, they build credibility and open doors. Invitations to speak at major conferences and events become commonplace once you are an author and difficulty connecting with high-profile individuals becomes a thing of the past.

But who has the time to write a book? And perhaps writing is not your forte?

That’s where I can help, I specialize in helping business leaders build their personal and business brands. If you are an industry leader or would like to become one, we can work together to share your expertise and knowledge with the world.

If you are looking for a writer who can capture your story, in your voice, look no further. With a long list of books to my credit and 40-years of mainstream book publishing experience behind me, I’m not your typical ghostwriter.

Call me now for a free, no-obligation consultation about your project: 250.704.6686. Let’s see how together, we can turn your words into a professional and successful publication that takes your business and career to the next level.

Please note that I do not cold call via email or text. If you are contacted by a company using my photo or profile with an offer that is too good to be true—for instance, a 200-page book written, edited, and designed for a few thousand dollars—then it is a scam. Beware. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any doubt about the authenticity of anyone using my name, photo, or credentials.

Scam ghostwriting websites have become a plague recently. Marcia Layton Turner (Executive Director of the Association of Ghostwriters), in collaboration with Kevin Anderson & Associates, has written a comprehensive article to help you spot ghostwriting scams and prevent yourself from becoming an unwitting victim. I am a member of the Association of Ghostwriters and have also worked with Kevin Anderson & Associates and can vouch for both organizations. To read the article click the following link.
