Content and Ghostwriting

I started doing content writing in 2009. In that time I have written about most everything under the sun. Although I’ll write about most topics (save for a few that are too technical or that compromise my sense of ethics), my preference is to write about the topics you see below. I have ghostwritten 15 books on various topics. And I’m happy to share excerpts privately. I love writing books and articles.
