In addition to ghostwriting speeches for every occasion, Alan will work with you to ghostwrite your article, commentary/editorial, or book. Whatever form the ghostwriting project takes - an autobiography/memoir; a self-help or how-to book; a book about business or almost any other subject - the final products will convey your message, your tone, your point of view, your essence, just as if you'd written it yourself. Alan will also do (or contract out) research that can strengthen and enrich your message.

  • LINGUISTIC SENSITIVITY: Alan pays close attention to the rhetorical nuances of each communicative situation...and gives you his best professional judgment on the appropriateness of specific words, phrases, and modes of expression and argumentation.
