I am a Certified Ghostwriter through California State University Long Beach, CCPE, soon to be the world's first accredited Masters Degree program in Ghostwriting.
In addition to offering manuscript analysis for structure and marketing; substantive, line and copy editing; collaborative ghostwriting and maintaining author voice, intent and coaching; creating book proposals, queries and more, I have 15+ years of experience as a design director, graphic designer, and publisher. (BA-Journalism, UW-Madison.) I have edited and published trade books in real estate and business, and have a keen interest in alternative health, functional medicine, nutrition, self-help, spirituality, Christianity, and the environment. I am also a professional resume writer with 15+ years of experience crafting interview-winning resumes, and offer LinkedIn profiles and other career documents. I also have worked in circulation in a public library, in operations at three publishing companies, and started my own small imprint which published and marketed four titles in the 1990s.
As a Certified Ghostwiter, I'm seeking publishers and authors who have great raw material and need that extra help to get their manuscript ready for sale. I am also offer Analyis & Recommendations on manuscripts for acquisitions editors, giving a detailed blueprint of what needs to be done to extract and polish the diamond in the work. My guarantee is that the finished manuscript will receive all the attention it deserves from publishers and readers.
I work with Acquisitions Editors, Publishers, Aspiring Authors, and Non-Writing Authors who seek a professional to do the heavy lifting to complete their manuscript in the best way possible. For Aspiring Authors interested in a writing career, I also serve as a coach and mentor, sharing my knowledge and expertise to help them develop their book writing skills.
