Sarah has ghosted twenty published books to date, working with experts across a broad professional spectrum, including business, psychology, parenting and childcare, personal development and nutrition. Two titles are successful TV tie-ins.

What's in a name?


A ghostwriter is a professional time-saver: a combination of researcher, creative wordsmith and chameleon, driven by an interest in their subject matter and the commercial focus of a deadline.


The role acts as both conduit and catalyst, enabling the real author to express their words, experiences, advice or opinions in a clear and focused way that remains true to their ‘voice’.


A ghost may put the words physically on the page, but the true author is always the person who has the story to tell. Without the expert’s knowledge; without the person who has lived the life; there would be no book.

The writing process


Whatever the market level, the most important elements for success are:

         A clear working structure, planned in advance

         A good working rapport

         An authentic and consistent author 'voice' throughout the book

         Adequate time to write and review


Interviewing takes place face-to-face or by phone, depending on the author’s availability and preference.

What authors have said:

‘I couldn't have done it without you.'

‘As always you have turned my verbal comments into magic text … you are indeed a magician.’

‘... you were fantastic to work with, which made it soooo easy for me. Everyone so far has said what a great read the book is, which makes very happy.’

‘You deserve to be very proud of this [book]. Many, many thanks for your hard work and good will…’

‘Thank you for making my book possible … a brilliant ghostwriter.’

‘It is a total pleasure to be working with you again and I really am so delighted ... I am sure we will have much fun.’

‘A good book considering the time available.’

‘… thank you again (with head and heart!) for great work. The best job yet on any of my books. Really.’

‘I cannot thank you enough for your amazing contribution to this book.’

‘I especially want to thank Sarah Sutton … for her judgement and skill … But for her nocturnal tendencies, this edition might not have seen the light of day.’
