Ghost Writer Biography


Biography

More and more people are researching their family history, finding the secrets and revelations of the long lost world they can trace through their ancestors. Programmes such as the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? and the explosion in the number of genealogy websites are testament to our increased interest in the lives of our forebears. Human history has all too often been forgotten in the retelling of the major events of the recent or distant past and biographies were, until very recently, the sole preserve of the rich and famous.

But the internet has opened up the opportunities to the less celebrated individual and the focus has moved towards the social history that comes through the personal story. No longer is there any such thing as ‘ordinary’. The story of the unsung makes for fascinating reading, not least to those on whom the events of the past impact directly on their present.

So where to start? At the outset committing your memories to paper can seem an enormous task, and without any writing experience, will be enough to put many off. What you need is a ghostwriter; someone who will turn your memories into concise, readable and enjoyable memoirs with your words and in your voice. Self-publishing is no longer out of reach. Many bookbinders can produce excellent copies of your biography economically, and to a style of your choosing. In short, what you see in the bookshop can now be on your bookshelf.

At Ghost Writer Books, we can help you. We conduct the interviews, do the research, the sub-editing and the proofreading, all before presenting you with a draft of your memoirs for you to approve prior to publication. We will discuss in depth the kind of biography you are looking for and use our contacts to make sure together we produce exactly the right book for you. And you can request as many copies as you want to make sure there are enough to go around all your family and friends. With Ghost Writer Books you can preserve your memories for the generations to come.

The Formative Years of Scouse Boden

By Thomas Boden

The Phoney War really ended in May 1940 with all the action in France. The Dunkirk evacuation, Operation Dynamo, had taken place over a week in May and June. Up until that point the bombing, which had been relatively light on Britain, meant we all came back home.

Eric was great as an older brother. When he was old enough, he used to look after me on Saturdays while mum and dad went to hospital to visit Hilda, who got tuberculosis of the hip at the age of two.

The Phoney War really ended in May 1940 with all the action in France. The Dunkirk evacuation, Operation Dynamo, had taken place over a week in May and June. Up until that point the bombing, which had been relatively light on Britain, meant we all came back home. I was glad to be back from Shropshire, but that didn’t last all that long. Liverpool suffered its first major air raid in August 1940, and there were to be two distinct blitzes, one just before Christmas 1940 and the second in May 1941.

The Formative Years of Scouse Boden.

“My children and grandchildren have often heard stories from my childhood in Liverpool in the 1930s and 40s, but it was the birth of my first great grandchild that made me realise I should commit those memories to paper so that one day she too would be able to understand where she had come from. Having never written more than a letter in the past, I found Ghostwriter Books provided an excellent service in terms of making sense of my ramblings. I was particularly impressed with the additional research they conducted to give more context to my story. The books arrived in time for Christmas, and I was delighted to be able to give away copies to my children. Highly recommended.”

"It’s like sitting in a room with my uncle while he talks about the old days. I’ve learnt stuff I didn’t even know about our family."

Linzy Boden

"Got the book and read it in one. Lovely. I could actually hear our Tommy."

Life's what you make it.

By John Seger

Part of the aftermath was that a huge rusty iron tube, that had previously been in the basement of the house, had somehow been blown up to street level. We used to play on this tube when we were kids but years later they found the body of a man in there dressed in Edwardian clothes.

 They reckoned he had been murdered all those years before and stuffed in the tube, where it had remained in someone’s cellar.

Michael was very sensitive to John’s condition and also very sensitive to his wishes that the book was written in his voice and did not contain too much elaboration or exaggeration. I now have a wonderful memory of my husband’s life, to share with my children and grandchildren. I would not have this without Michael’s help.
