A ghostwriter is, at once, a creative artist, a project manager, a best friend and confidante, a therapist, an industry insider, a publishing guide, a writing-and-life coach, a mentor, and a business person. ~ Claudia Suzanne, Ghostwriting Expert
Claudia Suzanne spearheads the movement to professionalize ghostwriting. Her training program, now taught through CSULB, has upgraded "Certified Ghostwriter" into an academically recognized Professional Designation. Her conference, Ghostwriters Unite, brought together the largest number of professional, experienced, and aspiring ghostwriters ever gathered from the four corners of the earth.
A generalist, Claudia has ghosted over 120 nonfiction and fiction titles in myriad subjects. She also authored four titles under her own name, including the internationally popular This Business of Books, considered a standard of the industry by college professors and librarians across the English and Chinese-speaking world, and Secrets of a Ghostwriter, the only textbook that deconstructs the theory, skills, and politics of how ghostwriters do what they do.
Claudia is the Founder/Creative Partner of Wambtac Communications LLC, a literary organization dedicated to professionalizing the ghostwriting field through education, community, and editorial-service excellence. Her dual missions are to launch new ghostwriting careers and to raise the literacy level of the book industry, one author at a time.
Claudia knows more about publishing than most people ever will. She is the consummate ghostwriter/teacher, understanding what authors need in order to successfully complete their book dream. One of the most savvy business people I have known. Trustworthy and supportive. Awesome dry sense of humor and spontaneous wit. I recommend her without qualification. ~ M.K. Pelland, Certified Ghostwriter
Our host Sharon Beth interviews Laura Becker-Sherman, the Friendly Ghostwriter! When people ask me, “What do you do?” I answer, “I’m Laura the Friendly Ghostwriter!” No one thinks that’s boring. I love to write. Typically I am working on a few memoirs and a business book, while a novel or two bubble away on the burners. When helping someone write their memoirs I focus on the overall message of the book first. I will not take on a story that is doom and gloom, designed to depress the reader. I am interested in inspirational stories, which will uplift people. People can learn a lot from another person's life story. For nonfiction, I specialize in making complex subjects easy to understand. This involves researching a subject so well that I can then break it down and explain it to anyone with any background. When I write fiction, my novels are very dialogue driven. I find that when I develop my characters, all I need to do is sit back and listen to them. So I guess you can call me a stenographer. I did get a degree in Civil Engineering at Cal Poly Pomona and worked for the Department of Water and Power in LA. I also studied chess for many years, playing in tournaments around the country. My highest national rating gave me the honor of being the top 35th woman player in the US. In 2008 I founded Your Chess Coach with my husband, teaching children the wonders of chess. We have taught hundreds of children to play. I love working with very young kids, breaking down the basics so that they can play the game (often beating their parents). Chess Is Child’s Play – Teaching Techniques that Work came out in April 2012. I wrote this book with author Bill Kilpatick in order to give parents the tools to become private chess coaches for their children. The reviews have been spectacular, which is very rewarding. I’m a ghostwriting, author, chess coach and mother. Life is always an adventure!

1941 - On the eve of America’s entry into World War II, Nazi Germany is developing a new weapon of unprecedented power, one that will give them ultimate victory over all the nations of the world. But the war turns against them before it is completed, and a conspiracy forms to preserve the weapon and carry on the research.
1999 - At the dawn of a new century, Alex Pyke, a self-styled bachelor entrepreneur, wants only the American Dream of a bigger house and a fatter bank account. But a business opportunity lures him back to Germany, the country he left as an orphan of five during the height of the Cold War. Upon his arrival, he is swept up in a deadly adventure involving an aging industrialist and his brilliant, beautiful niece. Even as Alex unravels the mysteries of his own family’s history, he makes a discovery that will change the direction of his life, and maybe the whole world beyond.
Seeing by Moonlight is a thriller that combines uncovered history of the German rocketry program with a science fiction twist to create a sweeping tale of secrets and love that spans generations past, present, and future.
