David is as genuine and authentic in his ghostwriting business as he is in his daily life. I can see why he has been such an inspiration as a pastor for over 40 years and such a success in his writing. He is an acclaimed author as well as an accomplished ghostwriter and editor. I consider him a trusted colleague as well as a good friend. He is a source of inspiration and insight, a real pro who can clarify and amplify your own voice. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to raise the bar on his or her writing.

Professional Ghostwriting Services

I'm a ghostwriter for hire and I specialize in Memoirs, History, Politics, Leadership, Faith/Inspiration, and Fiction.

A ghostwriter is a person whose job is to write a book or other work ( feature articles, blog posts, white papers, business plans, e-mail campaigns, etc.) for someone else who is the named author. In most cases, the ghostwriter writes the book while the author of the work takes all of the credit and any royalties or proceeds.

It has been very common for decades for politicians (Hillary Clinton & John F. Kennedy), business leaders (Lee Iacocca & Jack Welch), and even novelists (James Patterson & Ian Fleming) to use ghostwriters.

In fact, I’ve written a book (JFK’s GHOST—Kennedy, Sorensen, and the Making of Profiles in Courage) about how John F. Kennedy worked with his own ghostwriter to create a book that won a Pulitzer Prize for biography.

You may be surprised by how cost-effective it is to get your project ghostwritten and published. You may also be surprised that in many cases writing YOUR book can take about the same amount of your time as watching a 10-part Netflix series (spread over about three months).

I’d love to help you write YOUR book, based on YOUR ideas, and in YOUR voice.

[NOTE: Services are also available for short stories, newspaper columns, feature articles, white papers, and other projects that are less-than-book-length.]

“Agree or disagree with him. But you’ll never walk away from an encounter with David Stokes without feeling the better for it. His erudite writings and civil tongue are a model the rest of us should hope to emulate.”
