Elaine Ash is an award-winning author, ghostwriter, book doctor, and editor. Whether your dream is to publish a bestseller with a prestigious award attached, a business or thought-leader book, or a memoir just for family, Elaine has proof she's done it successfully for clients.
Yetta and David Kane wanted to do a personal memoir of their holocaust experience. The book had to be as uplifting as their hundreds of appearances at high schools to give troubled children hope. The book also had to honor Kane family members, young and old. How to Survive Anything was the result: a full color, hardcover, art-quality book. Exquisitely produced with Smyth-sewn binding, 100-pound acid-free paper, and a silk-ribbon bookmark attached, it was a family heirloom that retailed at less than cost to make ownership affordable for the public.
Todd Henderson, a University of Chicago law professor, penned a legal thriller manuscript titled Mental State. He hired Elaine for development, copyediting, and proofing, but she stayed on and landed Todd an agent. When a deal with Regnery fell through over the book's controversial content Elaine found another publisher and strategically promoted the book until the title became a bestselling nominee for the Edgar Award sponsored by the Mystery Writers of America in 2019. The winner of the million-dollar Berggruen prize, Martha Nussbaum, said, "Mental State is an impressive debut [with] real human depth and significance."
As a thought-leader in the world of editing, Elaine self-published a ground-breaking nonfiction book titled Bestseller Metrics: How to Win the Novel Writing Game. It is praised by industry insiders for its practical and effective system.
"It’s Moneyball for novelists." —Dan Kelly, editing client & 18-yr Warner Bros. veteran
"Bestseller Metrics codifies insights that I have been groping toward in the dark for years." —Albert Tucher, Principal Librarian Emeritus, Newark Public Library
Elaine also spent a decade working as a Hollywood entertainment reporter, profiling the biggest names in the business, such as Academy Award winner Terry Gilliam (Monty Python, The Fisher King); producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun movies, Pirates of the Caribbean); actress Helena Bonham Carter (Fight Club, Harry Potter) and many more famous names.

Hi, there! I’m Cyn, ghostwriter, writing coach, and fiction fanatic.
My entire business is making up stories. It’s what I live for, what I think about 24/7, and what wakes me up every morning, excited to get to work! In short, I LOVE WRITING NOVELS!
Since 2009, I've released 11 YA novels with major publishers (Random House, Harlequin, and Sourcebooks), and I've ghostwritten over 100 of them, in all genres, for both children and adults.
Ghostwriting with me is a unique experience. I believe that writing a novel should be fun and creative, so I don’t take myself too seriously. I do, however, take the process and deadlines VERY seriously, working toward one ultimate goal: Making your book the absolute best it can possibly be. I want our collaboration to put you at ease. I know that not every writer needs the same, cookie-cutter approach, so I’m flexible and fun to work with, and never too busy to answer your questions. I also specialize in achieving YOUR voice, making this book unique yours. I’ll work with you at every stage of the process to make creating your vision as enjoyable as possible! I take on only 1-2 projects a month, and I only accept if I think I can do your work and your vision justice. That's what I strive to do every day-- to give my clients exactly what they want, when they need it. Contact me today to see how we can create something amazing together.

For the past 40 years, I have written in diverse genre—sports, law, education, fiction, memoir, spirituality, sports, human interest and business. After retiring both from the practice of law as a business litigation and trial attorney and as a high school basketball coach in 2015, I became a professional writer. Since then, I finished five books. Three are published and two set for spring 2019 release.
Two are memoir: Play It Forward: From Gymboree to the Yoga Mat and Beyond and My Life, A Story of Resilience and Love.
Three are in the sports genre: Odds-On Basketball Coaching: Making High-Percentage Decisions in Game Situations; The Other Classroom: The Essential Importance of High School Athletics; and The Definitive Handbook for the Beginner High School Basketball Coach.
I am currently working on third legacy work for a client about spirituality and writing my first novel.
Being an author of original work thrills me. But I am equally jazzed to work with clients to give expression to their voice, tell their story, and connect with a target readership. Whether in the form of ghostwritten biography, blogs, articles or other client works or editing client original material, I see storytelling an art form and the most powerful written medium available.
I was born and molded in the Bronx and now live in Marin County, California.
I look forward to learning about your project and exploring the prospects of an exciting and mutually rewarding collaboration.
I am a British author living in SW France among the ancient hilltop villages, vineyards and orchards. An ideal place for a writer to find inspiration, and drink the wine.
My own published novels and novellas can be seen at:
Amazon.co.uk: Fran Connor: Books, Biography, Blogs, Audiobooks, Kindle.

I wrote one from the POV of a lost dog! I write in UK English or US English depending on the requirements of the client.
If you are looking for a ghostwriter to churn out a lot of words in a short time, I am not your ghostwriter. Deadlines are important and I keep to them but I work with the client to ensure I have sufficient time to produce a quality novel, novella or screenplay.
You will find I am flexible and easy to get along with but I would say that, wouldn't I. So please see some of my clients' reviews below.

Albo Devine — recognized only by his trademark mustache and Al The Ghost moniker — specializes in stories with an international angle: mostly memoir, fiction, and screenplays. A globetrotting multi-linguist — conversational in Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, and Japanese — Al is a genuine ghostwriter for stories in the age of the global citizen and a proud member of the Millennial generation. After nearly a decade working as a journalist in an increasingly post-fact world from Spain to Brazil to China, Al had a realization. He read a novel featuring a protagonist who wrote obituaries for a living. It was a fascinating tale, recounting the lives of interesting women and men who had passed away. As much as he loved the story, Al was saddened. "If only those people could have shared those stories while they were still alive," he thought. "If only the protagonist gave them their flowers when they could smell them." Not long afterward, Al was asked by a diplomat during an interview to help write her memoir. Almost overnight, he watched his ego disappear along with his byline. The vanishing act allowed Al to do his best work: putting himself last and the needs of his clients — the true authors — first. Based in Los Angeles, Al counts himself among the precious few Millennial ghostwriters ushering the publishing business into a world without digital or physical borders. He’s guided his clients to traditional, self, and hybrid publishers, all while keeping every client relationship 100% confidential. He’s worked with billionaires and blue-collar workers, entertainers and entrepreneurs across five continents but refuses to take credit on any project.

I ghostwrite books, am a top-flight editor, and I write book proposals and queries. My clients are CEOs, thought innovators, passionate motivators, cultural icons, masters and mentors leaving a legacy, start-ups and amazing individuals with a life story or unique experience to share.
Having written dozens books and corporate histories, I am an award-winning professional ghostwriter and editor with 25+ years of storytelling experience. I have the experience not just to write your book, but to manage the process from beginning to end to ensure you receive the best possible manuscript. You are in good hands.
We start by having a series of conversations where I'll get to know everything about you. Here is where I become familiar with how you express yourself, your goals and desires, and what kind of story you're going to tell.
Then comes a detailed outline and timeline for how our work together will progress, and the writing begins. I submit the work to you in increments, usually one chapter at a time, for your review, revising until you are satisfied and until your manuscript is complete.
Next, I can help you with the query letter and book proposal you'll need to get your work published, and, of course, answer any questions you might have about the publishing process in general.
I have written books on a wide variety of subjects and genres including memoirs, corporate histories, non-fiction (business, marketing, health and wellness, sustainability, self improvement, motivational, biographies) and novels.

Whether your book is a memoir, fiction, or nonfiction, there is usually a story, and I've always been fascinated by people's stories. In helping you tell your story, I will listen to you empathetically, maintain your voice, and collaborate with you in finding the poetry, beauty, and power of your story. The books I've ghostwritten are inspiring stories that I was happy to help their authors bring into the world, because inspiring, heartfelt writing (without ignoring the darkness) helps lift people's spirits in these challenging times, an antidote to all the suffering in the world. Memoirs, including stories dealing with social justice, are my special (though not exclusive) interest as a ghostwriter. Writing a memoir is a courageous and vulnerable journey, and I will honor yours so that you feel well seen. I am also an editor, both copy and developmental, and have helped the authors I've worked with make their writing more flowing, compelling, and publishable. Some were thrilled to be publishing their first book and sharing their powerful stories with others. My own writing- widely published articles, poetry, and stories - seeks to capture the poetry and beauty of everyday life, without ignoring the darkness, to lift my own and my readers' spirits and tap into something essential.
I have extensive experience ghostwriting and editing nonfiction books, op-eds, speeches, congressional testimony, articles and news releases for elected officials, business clients and nonprofit executives.
I am a former reporter and editor for newspapers and The Associated Press, where I primarily covered state and local governments and courts. I was also an op-ed editor for the Fox News website. I have held media relations positions with the federal government, New York state government, a crisis communications firm, a trade association and two think tanks.
Much of the ghostwriting I do today involves issues of public policy, government and politics, but I write about other topics as well. I work in strict confidentiality with Democrats, Republicans, liberals, moderates and conservatives, helping them express their views and gain support for their ideas.
As a teenager, my love for story began in the Amazon where I waterskied with piranha while learning about head hunters and curses. My first travel article about a visit to Dracula’s Bran Castle in Romania was published in The Los Angeles Times. My ghostwriting skills grew as I interviewed and reported on CEOs, celebrities, and style makers for World Travel Magazine, LA Parent, Jetsetter Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, and E!

Robin holds a certificate from the intense thirteen-month Ghostwriters Professional Development Program at California State University, Long Beach. Robin’s strengths include:
- Determining a manuscript’s market position before ghostwriting, allowing her to direct her writing to the appropriate audience
- Maintaining the author’s voice, style, intent, and perspective throughout all rewrites and edits
- Musically line editing to maximize punch, drive, and reading enjoyment…and to make your manuscript sing
- Writing needed query letters and book proposals for agent and publisher submission
As a compassionate partner and active listener, Robin will help mold your ideas into a marketable, hold-in-your-hands, literary property. Written in your voice. With only your name listed as the author.
