Portfolio – So You Want to Know if I’m Any Good?

Portfolio – So You Want to Know if I’m Any Good?

Ghostwriting is an anonymous business, and I can’t show you most of that work. So how do you find out if I’m good at what I do?

Here are a few samples I’ve produced under my own name.

Memoir:

When your sick kid becomes a sick adult – Boston Globe

Life Writing:

Politics and Policy:

In addition to the writing itself, much of my ghostwriting receives major news coverage.  Here are some articles derived from my writing.  There’s quite a bit more, but that whole confidentiality thing…
