The art of the ghostwriter

15 May 2006

'It's not our job to be objective and even-handed. We're there to be passionately subjective, fighting as hard to put across our clients' stories as any barrister in any courtroom. We ask endless impertinent questions in order to climb inside their skins and put their views convincingly. Every page of an autobiography must sound as authentic as a monologue in a play

Ghosting is a varied, rewarding life for any writer able to suppress their own opinions and ego. Hanging out with characters as colourful as Sharon Osbourne is never going to be anything less than entertaining, and to have the inside track on the truth behind the doors of 'Beckingham Place' must make anyone an in-demand dinner guest.'

Andrew Croft, ghostwriter-extraordinaire, in the Sunday Telegraph
