Once upon a time I was a ghost(writer)

I’ve written about a dozen of these. Spines and covers must remain hidden because they were ghosted under strictest secrecy. Millions of readers have enjoyed my storytelling – and that’s no exaggeration because average sales were 500,000 copies each.

With all that experience, I understand most of the pitfalls of writing – and I know how to help authors draft, fix and finish with confidence. A recent client went on to win the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2012. I now teach creative writing masterclasses for The Guardian newspaper in London.

  1. I have so much respect for ghostwriters, but none for those who use them. Ghostwriters seem like the sort of people who write for the sake of writing and not for recognition.

    • Julia, thank you! It’s a double-edged sword. Readers probably feel a bit cheated if they hear something’s ghosted. But for writers it’s a great way to stretch into new genres, new voices. What I’ve learned writing as other people has fed back into my own art.
