“Ghostwriting is a bit like acting, but far less glamorous.”
– Clare Harrison, writer, 2016
Ghostwriting allows you to see into people’s heads and imagine their innermost thoughts. Sometimes these mental workings are salacious – other times they involve finance. I’ve written articles on everything from stock exchange regulation and off-exchange trading to travel, entrepreneurship and quitting your job to live on a desert island.
Clients have ranged from investment bankers to peripatetic entrepreneurs, doctors, and former diplomats. My articles have appeared in newspapers like The Telegraph and The Times, and sites like Fast Company, Forbes, and The Huffington Post.
No subject too complicated. No niche too obscure.

In The Times
I started my career as a business journalist. During that time, I interviewed many board-level executives, investors, and regulators. I was then hired to write thought leadership by investment banks, technology companies, and PR agencies.
Over the past decade, I’ve written in a variety of different formats including:
- Annual reports
- Thought leadership
- Investor perception studies
- White papers

Books & proposals
Over time, I found myself getting embroiled in longer and longer form writing.
The proposal I wrote for Screw The Cubicle, helped raise over $6,000 in orders in four weeks and attracted interest from 12 publishers on Publishizer, a crowdfunding platform that matches publishers with authors.

Behind most news stories is a cracking pitch.
When I was a journalist, I received gazillions of pitches. Now I help clients with theirs. What does that mean? It means thinking of ideas that might actually get published. It means communicating them in the most exciting way possible, and in the fewest words possible.
It means being timely and responsive. It means plugging into the issues of the day – whatever that may be.
Successful pitches include:
- Article pitches for the likes of Forbes and Business Insider.
- Press releases published in the Wall Street Journal.
- Feature pitches that have appeared in major national newspapers like The Globe & Mail.
