Welcome. This site contains everything you need to know about ghostwriters; how to hire one, how to become one and what it is, exactly, that we do.

Whether you want to write a personal story or a business book, a ghostwriter can help. In the non-fiction section you will find details of stories I’ve written for gangsters and princesses, oriental tycoons and African chieftans, courtesans and celebrities, as well as for ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences.

There are also links to Amazon should you be tempted to shop.
