It’s not always easy getting a story down on paper, especially if it’s a personal story or tackles a complex topic. Even with a gripping story to tell or expertise in a particular field of interest, you might still find yourself unable to communicate your story in the way you imagined.

Too many important stories never see the light of day because their owner or creator couldn’t find the right words, felt they had failed and gave up.

As a ghostwriter, it’s my job to prevent that from happening.

Just because you have a story, doesn’t mean you have to be a writer. A ghostwriter provides the professional expertise in writing for a commercial audience, so you can focus on the message or expert information the story conveys.

I specialise in true-life books covering a range of emotional and challenging topics, working with publishers including Ebury, Blink and John Blake (Imprints of Bonnier Books UK) and HarperCollins, but I also provide ghostwriting services for first-person features, opinion and thought leadership pieces.

Chris Wild lost his dad aged 11, leaving him to grow up in the care system. There, he witnessed the incessant physical and sexual abuse of children, with the only escape leading to the streets. So many others like him, failed by the systems put in place to protect them, ended up with nothing but drink, drugs, prostitution and crime as their normality. Later, working in a care home himself became the only way Chris could help, but he was shocked to discover little had changed and vulnerable children were still being failed. In Damaged, he shares heartbreaking memories of the care system along with the stories of all the boys, girls, men and women he met along the way – exposing why we must take action now to protect all of Britain's forgotten children.
