What Clients Say About Barry & Nadine

how to publish a book

As ghostwriters, we’ve worked with top business professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, inventors, motivational speakers, professors, physicians, and even with the butler who attended to Princess Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, on the night they died.

Here’s what some of our clients have said about working with us:

Bill and I are delighted to have had Nadine Taylor’s help in blending the kaleidoscope of our lives into a readable fashion for our family memoir. Her research, knowledge of story structure, encouragement, and assurance that our story would be interesting to current and future generations was invaluable. She 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 Legendre Doré and William J. Doré, founder and former CEO, Global Industries

For years, I thought about writing a book as a way to pass along certain life lessons and create some sort of legacy, but always held back because it seemed too complicated, and I didn’t know where to start. Then I met Barry Fox, a ghostwriter who proved to have a tremendous ability to convert my words, thoughts, and stories into a well-structured, thoughtful, insightful book.

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

Here’s my most important piece of advice: be sure to hire a great writer. No, wait—it’s a lot easier than that. Simply hire the best in the biz, Nadine Taylor! 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

Barry’s writing, editorial, and research work greatly transformed my project. We were able to take it to levels I hadn’t imagined possible. I can’t wait to work with him on the next venture.

Shaun Connell, Founder of the Conservative Institute

Deciding to work with Nadine…was the best decision I have made in a long time. Her attention to detail, professionalism, and writing skills are superb.

Lorna Myers, Ph.D., Executive Director Epilepsy Free Foundation

A book can be tricky to write, especially when you’re combining your life story with your political philosophy. Fortunately, I found Barry Fox. He has an uncanny ability to understand what’s important and what’s not; to make you think more deeply about your life and come up with insights you didn’t know you had; and to transform your stories, ideas and feelings into writing that is not only beautiful but highly readable. With Barry’s help, writing my book was not only possible, it was pleasurable.

Steven Friedman, Vice Chairman & CEO of United Steel Service

Barry was critical to moving the work of publishing my book along. When I would get stuck on concepts or flow he had the ability to listen, see the bigger picture and suggest content that was crisp and enjoyable to read. Barry has the unique ability to ensure that a writer’s collection of thoughts can be weaved together with stories, images, and frameworks into one well-thought-out whole.

Mitch Wasden, CEO of OHSU Healthcare

Barry showed an amazing ability to grasp my vision, then creatively and almost supernaturally produce it. And the bonus was that the lengthy discussions about the stories to go into the book felt like therapy, and, surprisingly, I missed it once it was over.

Jesmane Boggenpoel, former Head of Business Engagement, Africa, World Economic Forum

Barry thinks big, is incredibly creative, insists on maintaining a high quality bar, and is a consummate professional. I loved working with Barry and hope to do so again in the future!

Lindi Tardif, International Tax Manager at Amazon

Thank you for your incredible work… Not only was the manuscript on time, but it was clean, well-researched, and was a perfect execution of the editorial vision for the book.
