Where are the books I have written for clients?

I can’t show them to you because I have an ironclad privacy agreement with my clients, so their clients will never know I ghost-wrote their book. You will have the same guarantee.

Here are a few of the many nonfiction books I have written under my name, so you can judge the quality of my work before you engage my services.
