William Hammett, Independent Ghostwriter

Ghostwriter for Fiction, Nonfiction, and Memoirs

Words and ideas change the world. Put them in the right order and you have a book that could change a classroom of young minds or end up as a major motion picture. Books have unlimited potential.

As a ghostwriter, I’ve helped clients create new worlds or reimagine the one we all share. From cave paintings to eBooks, stories define who we are.

If you have a story, I’d like to hear about it. Your passions, dreams, ideas, life experiences—they can change the world.

The Personal Touch

I work with one client at a time to provide the deep personal connection you need in a ghostwriter. Most ghostwriters work on three to five books at once.

And companies? Their sites claim their writers are award-winners. They’re not. If you believe they produce thousands of bestsellers, you're a few clicks away from getting a bad book.

When you contact me, you'll be talking to the person who will write your book. Period. Full stop. You won't have to speak to sales reps, project managers, editors, or writers who are mere subcontractors.

My Clients

I've written books for U.S. Congressmen, Emmy winners, an Oscar-nominated film producer, entrepreneurs, professional athletes, Hollywood celebrities, famous novelists, CEOs, and ordinary people who had a story they were passionate about.

Some of my clients have been represented by A-list New York City literary agents and have been published by HarperCollins, Penguin, Scholastic, Simon & Schuster, Story Plant, Tor/Forge, and Viking.

Also, many of the books I’ve written have been reviewed by the following:

  • Publisher's Weekly
  • NPR
  • The New York Times
  • The The Washington Post
  • Kirkus Reviews
  • Booklist
  • The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
  • The Los Angeles Times

Other clients have worked in front of or behind the cameras for major films and TV shows such as:

  • CSI
  • The Wolf of Wall Street
  • Saturday Night Live
  • The Simpsons
  • Law and Order
  • Everybody Loves Raymond
  • Castle
  • Rizzoli & Isles

Major celebrities, athletes, politicians, and authors don't seek out ghostwriting companies. They look for experienced writers who have a reputation for excellence, writers who can make their books sing – writers like me, William Hammett.

Straight Talk, Great Books

If you want a great book that can influence people and fire their imaginations, hire a writer, not a company. Great books that change the world aren’t created by “the team.”

And don’t get scammed. Ninety percent of all companies are based in the Philippines despite U.S. addresses. And the ethics and claims of U.S. companies don’t pass muster either.

I believe great writing can be summed up in four words from Ernest Hemingway: "Get the words right." When I work with a client, that's what I do – get the words right.

Dream big.

Write a book.
