The Proof Is in the Praise
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:
Kay Legendre Doré and William J. Doré, founder and former CEO, Global Industries:
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!
Bruce Krysiak, former President/Board Member of Toys “R” Us:
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.
After listening to my intentions and concerns, Barry helped me create a format for the book that gave a logical flow and sensibility to my ideas. I was impressed by his ability to challenge me creatively and sharpen my focus. He also helped me explore and express the personal side of my thoughts and experiences in ways that truly brought the book to life.
Working with Barry became a journey of self-discovery, resulting in a much better book than I ever could have written on my own.
Denise Dudley, founder and former CEO of SkillPath Seminars, the largest public training company in the world:
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.
Shaun Connell, Founder of the Conservative Institute:
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.
Lorna Myers, Ph.D., Executive Director Epilepsy Free Foundation:
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.
Steven Friedman, Vice Chairman & CEO of United Steel Service:
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.
Mitch Wasden, CEO of OHSU Healthcare
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.
Jesmane Boggenpoel, former Head of Business Engagement, Africa, World Economic Forum:
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.
Here is what publishing VIPs have said about our work:
