Christopher Richards

You’re a business leader/owner with significant experience. When you engage me as your business-book ghostwriter, you’re hiring a partner to help you structure and articulate your ideas the way you want them presented. My initial objective is to draw out your ideas, interrogate them, and organize the good ones into a coherent outline. In the first stages, I’ll be asking you many questions. But to help you now, please consider the questions below on this page. Author and ghostwriter will spend time together (virtually), so fit is key to a successful outcome. And that’s why setting up a time to talk is the first step.

I’m originally from Oxford, England, and came to the US after graduating college. I’ve extensive business experience and have been ghostwriting business books for 16 years.
