Do you live on the island of Ireland? Do you want to hire someone to ghostwrite a book for you? Below we’ve featured 4 top ghostwriters in Ireland.
1. Sue Leonard
Currently based in County Wicklow, Ireland, Sue Leonard is a professional ghostwriter and journalist. Besides being the author of Keys to the Cage and the co-author of An Act of Love with Marie Fleming and of Whispering Hope, the True Story of the Magdalene Women, Sue Leonard has also worked on 8 other books as a ghostwriter. Furthermore, two of them, written for Penguin Ireland, were best-sellers. Her experience in journalism has definitely helped her build a career in the writing industry, as she has interviewed a great number of authors, eleven of which have won the Man Booker Prize. Sue provides one-on-one tuition on both ghostwriting and freelance journalism, and she also teaches these subjects at The Irish Writer’s Centre, at IEL Abroad, as well as online.
In terms of ghostwriting, there is no standard plan which she follows, as projects vary widely from rewriting someone’s work to editing what they’ve created so far and then finishing the story. For this, any material which can be edited must be provided to her. Sue will conduct interviews every week, and then transcribe them in around three months. Alternatively, she can write a proposal and three chapters for publishers or agents.

Red Hen Publishing is a company that specializes in ghostwriting, editing, proofreading, book publishing, and writing services, and it is located in County Kerry, Ireland. This essentially means that, as long as you have a book to publish, they can help you through every step of the process.

In their services section, they describe ghostwriting for autobiographies, memoirs, and for family, company, or community history. Regardless of the purpose of your project, they guarantee that their team can write a comprehensive story which could be successful with any type of audience. Thus, the client will be interviewed and, once this stage is over, the ghostwriter will transcribe the interviews and write a manuscript to an already settled length, in a tone that resembles the client. Each project’s price depends on several factors, among which we can name the word count and the number of services requested.
