Here’s a short, to-the-point Q&A article written by ghostwriter Roz Morris with additional tips on breaking into ghostwriting:
While you’ve heard much of it before, you’ll find a few new tips and insights.
One involves using journalism as a springboard for a ghostwriting career (near the end of Morris’ article).
I also like this point the ghostwriter makes: “I find it liberating to work on a book where I don’t have to be me.” One of the many joys of ghostwriting — pretending you’re someone else. Like acting, only on paper.
By the way, what are you working on these days? I’m ghostwriting a romance, ghostwriting a self-help book, and doing technical writing for an engineering firm. I also write articles here and there. When I’m not writing, I’m enjoying life with my husband and our young adult kids. And our energetic Jack Russell Terrier.
