I am a bestselling and experienced ghostwriter, known for my empathetic and sensitive approach when working with authors. Versatile and highly skilled, I am able to work in any genre, from inspirational memoirs and moving true stories to celebrity superleads, nostalgia and animal tales. My writing talent combined with my in-house experience as an editorial director of Penguin Random House gives me a unique capability to deliver what publishers want.
I welcome approaches at any stage of a project, and from publishers, agents and authors alike.
