Now you see me, now you don't.

That's because I'm a ghostwriter. Sometimes I write books for other people, or I work with folks to help them tell their stories. Even though I may weave the words that unfurl onto the page, my name doesn't go on the book cover. I'm lurking behind every sentence—but you'll never see me there.

I've written a dozen or so books that have gone on to be published by Random House, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, Penguin/Portfolio, St. Martin's, and Hyperion, including one international bestseller and three Amazon bestsellers. A novel I worked on years ago was adapted for TV and aired as a primetime series. I've actually never seen the show, believe it or not.

I am also the Chief Creative Officer for BusinessGhost, Inc., where I coax whole books out of people's heads and gussy them up in ink and paper. This is, in effect, my "day job," which means I get to tell stories for a living. Pretty cool, huh?
