Keyboard a Manuscript?
Creating your autobiography shouldn't be an experience between you and a stack of paper. Or even you and a laptop. It should be between you and another human being. A Christian biographer and perceptive listener who guides faith leaders to bring their true stories to life.

The Book-Creation Process, in Detail
The Plan: You and I talk to sketch out the blueprint—those concepts you envision in your future book. We also discuss your take-away goals for your book’s audience plus your strategies for using the book to sculpt or to broaden your ministry.
Afterward, I research top-selling books that have topics or audiences in any way similar to yours. Then we talk again to sharpen the plan. In this way, we ensure that your book’s content and message will be both in demand and exceptional.
The Interview: I interview you by phone, video call, or in person. While we speak, I audio-record our interview. The audio, once transcribed, becomes your autobiography's rough draft.
An in-depth interview is usually completed in two days.
The Ghostwrite: Using the manuscript draft—your own words—I start to ghostwrite your story. After finishing a chapter or so, I send it to you to make certain you’re delighted with the voice and style in which the story is emerging.
Ghostwriting an entire autobiography manuscript commonly takes three to four months.
The Edit: You read the manuscript, make any updates, then return the manuscript to me. I incorporate the updates with additional ghostwriting.
Note: Authors should read and edit their manuscripts a minimum of twice, with reflection time between, to ensure the finished book will be accurate and just as compelling as initially envisioned.
The Proofread: Either I or a trusted, independent proofreader will verify that the content is publication-ready.
And with that, your manuscript will be a few small steps away from being a published book.
