William Hammett: Independent Ghostwriter and Editor
I ghostwrite and edit fiction and nonfiction, primarily book-length manuscripts, although shorter works are accepted for consideration. For fiction, I handle literary, mainstream, and most genres. For nonfiction, I handle many areas. Please consult my professional web site for details. I also offer mentoring for those who wish to start an independent ghostwriting career rather than working for ghostwriting companies. I offer a sound business model that has proven effective.
I have a Masters degree in English and thirty graduate hours in Education. I taught writing and literature for over twenty years and have written over one hundred books, eight under my own name. I have also published articles, poetry, and short stories in literary journals around the country (American Poets & Poetry, Pegasus, Parnassus Literary Journal, Black Buzzard Review, Poem, Rockford Review, Lynx, Twilight Ending, Rose & Thorn, Angelflight, Mojo Risin’, Figaro, Preditors & Editors, and many more). My latest book under my own name is JOHN LENNON AND THE MERCY STREET CAFE.
