The Memoir Ghostwriter

Barry Fox & Nadine Taylor, memoir ghostwriters

We, Barry Fox and Nadine Taylor, are memoir ghostwriters who view the creation of your memoir or autobiography as a labor of love.

As master storytellers, we’ll weave your life adventures into a fascinating memoir that captivates, informs, and moves your readers.

We’ve had the pleasure of writing and ghostwriting many memoirs and autobiographies.

These include the story of Princess Diana’s final days on Earth; the roller-coaster life of a penniless couple who eventually built a $2-billion dollar oil business; and the life story of a young South African woman who suffered the outrages of apartheid—including the murder of her father—then rose to become a successful attorney at Amazon, with a fascinating outlook on humanity and forgiveness.

We’ve also had the pleasure of seeing our work featured in major newspapers and on television shows in multiple countries.

But as memoir ghostwriters, our greatest joy continues to lie in accessing a person’s deepest, most significant memories and using them to create a captivating memoir or autobiography that readers simply can’t put down.

Our works include:

Praise from clients…

Here’s what two of our clients have said about our memoir ghostwriting services:

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… Writing the book with Nadine was a wonderful experience that we recommend to all!


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…Working with Barry became a journey of self-discovery, resulting in a much better book than I ever could have written on my own.

“Memoir Ghostwriter Detective”

We’ve found that being professional memoir ghostwriters often requires us to be sleuths.

For one memoir, we spent several days in Louisiana, visiting the author’s previous homes, schools, and other important sites so we could get a feel for the places and people we would be writing about.

We’ve also traipsed through a steel processing plant; studied diagrams of yachts and Parisian apartments; sorted through hundreds of old photos and documents; visited galleries, boned up on Chinese and Czech history; sought out background information from university professors; and interviewed people from around the world, sometimes with the help of interpreters.

To Help You Get Started with Your Memoir

We’ve prepared several articles and a podcast to help you make the journey from blank page to published book, whether you’re on your own or accompanied by a memoir ghostwriter. Here’s a helpful article to start with,  “How to Write a Memoir.” For the podcast, click here.

We’ve also prepared a series of articles looking at different aspects of writing memoirs and autobiographies, including:

Memoir Ghostwriting Services

Writing your memoir is a huge undertaking, but it doesn’t stop there. The next challenge is getting it published.

Many of our clients have asked us to help with the self-publishing of their memoirs. Their needs can vary quite a bit: we’ve helped with everything from simply finding a printer to overseeing the publication of a beautiful, hardback, two-volume boxed set.

We’ve also shepherded books, including Diana & Dodi: A Love Story, through the standard publication process.

Do You Need Bestselling Memoir Ghostwriting Services?

Some people may be able to write insightful, delightful memoirs all on their own. Others will need assistance.

You may not know whether you’re one of the former or the latter until you’re well into the work. You can, however, consider a few questions before beginning.

Can you think thematically?

Can you select the best structure?

Are you willing to sacrifice your favorite stories?

Do you have a passion for writing?

Do you have the time to dedicate to your memoir?

Yes? No?

If your answer to all of the above is yes, you might be able to produce a wonderful memoir on your own. If not, you should hire a memoir ghostwriter.

Being Ghostwriters for Memoirs

The thing we love most about ghostwriting memoirs, autobiographies, and life stories is the fascinating people we get to work with. . . whether they are CEOs or airplane pilots, artists or CEOs, or “just plain folks.”

All of them have imagined and striven, struggled and triumphed—and at times just endured. And all have amazing, enthralling life stories to tell.

All they’ve needed is someone to help them tell those stories, and that’s where we, the memoir ghostwriters, come in.
