book coach editorial services freelance & ghost writing
s an editor, ghostwriter and proofreader, I have assisted with two New York Times bestsellers, a highly lauded cancer memoir, and a guide on eating a plant-based diet for better health and weight loss. Projects have included full-length fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, essays for medical school and graduate school applications, magazine articles, brochure copy, and a master's level dissertation on wound management for the elderly. In short, I'm extremely flexible. As an experienced journalist, my interviewing and research skills are top notch. I have assisted with the following publications:
