Looking For a Ghostwriter?
We’re Barry Fox and Nadine Taylor, expert ghostwriters of memoirs, business books, and other nonfiction genres, with New York Times best-selling credentials and praise from top editors at New York publishing firms.
We’ve worked with CEOs of billion-dollar firms, professors, newscasters, attorneys, entrepreneurs, and other fascinating people. Based in Los Angeles, California, we’ve written for people all over the U.S. and abroad.
What makes us expert ghostwriters is the way we approach each book.
We’ll view your book the same way you do: as a precious collection of ideas and experiences—your golden opportunity to entertain, educate, or inspire others, or perhaps even change the world. We’ll work hard to make sure that your vision becomes a reality.
So we won’t simply gather up your notes, conduct a few hours of interviews, and knock out a completed manuscript in a month or two.
Instead, we’ll spend a great deal of time communicating with you. We need that time to develop a close relationship and push beyond the obvious to find out what really matters to you. We’ll also spend time examining alternative approaches—perhaps different openings or endings for the book, alternate structures, and so on. This is absolutely necessary in order to create the book of your dreams, and we do it gladly!
The Process is a Pleasure
Here’s what some of our clients have said about working with us:
“Working with Barry became a journey of self-discovery, resulting in a much better book than I ever could have written on my own…” –Bruce Krysiak, former President/Board Member of Toys “R” Us
“Nadine became a writer, therapist, literary critic, and friend, all rolled into one. Writing the book with Nadine was a wonderful experience that we recommend to all!” –Kay and William J. Doré, founder and former CEO, Global Industries
“…the bonus was that the lengthy discussions about the stories going into the book felt like therapy and, surprisingly, I missed them once it was over.” –Jesmane Boggenpoel, former Head of Business Engagement, Africa, World Economic Forum
“Thanks, Nadine, for encouraging me, for keeping me on track, and especially for your friendship. You have made this journey fun.” –Denise Dudley, founder and former CEO of SkillPath Seminars
For more, see our Testimonials page.
We’ll begin by spending lots of time speaking with you, whether in person or via phone and Skype. Then we’ll write the drafts of each chapter and send them to you for review and comments.
Once your manuscript has been completed and proofed, we can, if you’d like, help you navigate the publishing process. If you’re interested in standard publication, we can write a book proposal and help you identify appropriate literary agents. If you’re pursuing self-publishing, we can shepherd you through that process, as well.
Our goal is to help you realize your dream of creating a fantastic book—one that may even change the world. So let’s get started!
Barry? Nadine? Both?
Which one of us you’ll work with depends on your book. For example, Nadine loves to write story-based memoirs, while Barry prefers to work on memoirs designed to offer lessons. Nadine handles the “business lite” books, while Barry likes to dig into business books based on theory and study. And while Barry has worked on history and political projects, Nadine, who is a Registered Dietitian, has expertise in health.
In addition to the subject matter, “click” is important. Sometimes it’s obvious right from the first meeting that the author-client has instant rapport with one of us, which makes that person the perfect ghostwriter.
We Handle Many Genres
Individually or together, we’ve written, ghostwritten, and edited books, articles, and speeches in many genres, including memoir, business, history, health, politics, and art. We invite you to learn more about the process by clicking on memoir ghostwriting, business book ghostwriting, or ghostwriting in general.
P.S. Please note that we do not ghostwrite works of fiction (novels).
