Ghostwriting your business book

Christopher Richards

For the last 15 years, I’ve been ghostwriting business books for leaders like you. As your business book ghostwriter, my purpose is to understand, shape, and express your ideas the way you want them represented. And to make the experience of working with me enjoyable.

You’re an expert with significant business experience. That’s why you already know why your business book will be a smart investment. Like many entrepreneurs, business consultants, and CEOs you don’t have time to sit down and write your book.

Very few business leaders do.

Congratulations on taking action, even if that’s just reading this site. What’s vital in a successful partnership is the right personality match for both author and business ghostwriter. The best way to find out is to set up a time to connect by online video.

Options for ghostwriting your business book

Where are you in your process? Are you at the conceptual stage? If yes, you want to know if your idea is sustainable for a book-length work. In that case, we can work together to consider, generate, and stress-test ideas. An ideal place to start any project is to determine the core idea of your book and structure the main sub-points that will support it. Alternatively, you may have written part of your book, or even have a complete manuscript, and now you need a rewrite.

I expect to do all of the writing, but having your business book ghostwritten is a collaborative effort. Even though your time is limited, you should expect to carve out time for the process of working with me.


I don’t list books I’ve ghostwritten because the business ghostwriter-client relationship is confidential. You can see examples of my writing in business book reviews and articles on the menu above. What writing samples won’t tell you about is the process of working together. And that’s why we should talk.

About me

I’m originally from Oxford, England and moved to the United States in my late 20s. I’ve been an entrepreneur, consultant, and an interim CEO before focusing on ghostwriting business books.

The first chance to ghostwrite a business book was when a friend asked me to take over a full-length book project, something I had never done before. I can’t say that the project was something I would be proud of today. But over time, I learned the long-form craft, and I’ve been ghostwriting business books ever since.

Each book I write contributes to my understanding of businesses and the people who run them. My main interest is storytelling, quickly followed by communication, psychology, critical, and creative thinking.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with Lynnette Rogers, who’s such a good editor that I married her.
