Who hires a ghostwriter?
Anyone who wants to create a professionally prepared book seeks ghostwriting services. Cultural and social leaders, industry experts, celebrities, politicians, sports stars, and executives are the most common professions to hire writers like me. Everyday people also employ ghostwriters because they believe in the power of their story, they want to leave a legacy, and they want to give back.
What these people have in common is a deep respect for the craft and skill of professional writing. They wouldn’t expect to pick up a guitar or paintbrush and be able to whip out a masterpiece, and they don’t expect to write a book and have it be clear and compelling to their readers. They also have the financial resources in order to do this.

Is hiring a ghostwriter ethical?
Ghostwriting is a common and established practice in publishing and speech writing. The book’s contents wouldn’t exist without you. Collaboration with a ghostwriter doesn’t mean giving them a bunch of files and walking away. It’s a project that requires your ongoing participation. It’s not like you’re buying someone else’s research and pulling it off as your own. You’re hiring someone to translate your stories and wisdom in a digestible way.
