With more than 30 years of experience as a freelance business journalist (writing under the pen name Lin Grensing-Pophal), corporate communications executive representing high-profile executives and businesses, and content marketer, I bring a unique perspectives and experiences to the world of ghostwriting.

As the director of corporate communications in the education, energy, and healthcare industries, I honed my skills in writing on behalf of CEOs, C-suite leaders, and other key stakeholders. In these roles, I produced a wide range of materials – from emails, memos/letters, to newsletters, reports, and presentations that effectively conveyed business leaders' visions and messages to diverse audiences, both internal (employees) and external (customers/clients/patients, business leaders, trade associations, and the media). 

Since founding Strategic Communications in 2008, a marketing consulting and content marketing firm, I've continued to provide top-notch ghostwriting services to independent consultants and Fortune 500 companies, helping them articulate their brand voices and tell their stories with clarity and impact.

Over the years I've also written several books for clients both directly and through agencies. I'm the author of 20 books: 6 ghostwritten, 2 self-published, and the others published through traditional publishers. 

Throughout my career, I've developed a keen sense of understanding the nuances of different voices and styles, allowing me to seamlessly adapt to the tone and language of my clients. My extensive experience in both corporate and freelance settings has equipped me with the skills to work efficiently, meet tight deadlines, and maintain the highest level of confidentiality – essential qualities for a successful ghostwriter. 

Whether you're a thought leader looking to establish your expertise and authority through written content, or a business seeking to elevate your brand narrative, I'm dedicated to helping you achieve your goals through high-quality, engaging writing that resonates with your audience.
