Hello! I’m Laura Sherman the Friendly Ghostwriter. I write books for people who have something to say!

Check out my website:

I’ve been a professional ghostwriter for over twenty years and love what I do. Most clients come to me unable to complete their books. They’ve hit a brick wall. Often, they begin to doubt themselves and question whether they’ll ever actually hold their finished book in their hands.

I love to breathe new life into my client’s project. Writing a book can be frustratingly hard if you’re on your own. However, with a friendly ghostwriter it can be easy and fun!

People who hire me:

  • Don’t know how to get started
  • Find their story isn’t working
  • Can’t complete their book

My ghostwriting process can be broken up into three main phases:

  1. Researching and Outlining
  2. Writing the first draft
  3. Editing the manuscript

I’ve ghostwritten and authored over forty books: 20 memoirs, 11 novels, 10 nonfiction, and a dozen short stories. Although I can’t share many of the titles, here are books that bear my name on the cover:

  • Chess Is Child’s Play
  • Taking Flight
  • Joshua’s Missing Peace
  • Discovering Kindness
  • Your Guide to Hiring a Ghostwriter

I pride myself on answering my emails quickly, usually within a day. If you’re interested in exploring working together, don’t hesitate to reach out.
