    Claudia Suzanne – Dispelling the Myths about Ghostwriting

    in Business

    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
