Toni Boyle, The Empress of Audio, Duchess of Digital and Princess of Print is who you should talk to. So you know, I've been honored to be associated with Toni since 1996 - I listed her as co-author as a surprise to her - her anticipation was that she would be a ghost. ABoyleCo@aol.com, 847/251-7536

My recommendation for a fantastic ghost writer is Toni Robino. She is also an editor and works as a book agent so has a comprehensive perspective. She has written on very diverse topics including heavy business (for me) and is extremely capable. Contact Toni at robino@withflyingcolours.com or 740/987-6873.

Ghost writer or co-writer? There's a big difference!

I just hired Vida Jurisic and she is great. I have a book that needs to be finished and out of all the people I spoke to, she understood me and my book the best. And, she is a doll to work with.
