“…good-humored, and fun.”

Eric Shapiro and Michael McKown

Partners Eric Shapiro and Michael McKown teamed up in late 2002. Since Ghostwriters Central’s inception thereafter, the company has fulfilled the writing needs of an endless assortment of clients, from high-profile figures to new authors.

Every project undertaken by Ghostwriters Central, from a one-page document to a 300-page manuscript, is handled with the utmost care. We always deliver clients’ projects with excitement, secure in the knowledge that we have devoted great effort to the cause.

Ghostwriters Central sets itself apart from its competitors in two major ways:

1) We’re the most down-to-earth ghostwriting service we know of. Whereas many of our competitors approach their work with an air of entitlement, we pride ourselves on keeping things simple, open, good-humored, and fun. Indeed, we attribute a good part of our success to our attitude. People hire Ghostwriters Central again and again because we operate with 0% nonsense and 100% accessibility and professionalism.

2) Our pricing has been designed with full awareness of the client’s needs. Our affordable rates reflect the fact that whether you’re hiring us to write a book, a screenplay, a speech, web text for your site, marriage vows or what have you, we fully acknowledge that you’re often at the beginning of a long and involved process (i.e., getting published, getting a movie produced, delivering a speech), and we have no intention of using that to our advantage. In fact, we recommend that you beware of ghostwriting companies that attempt to inflate the value of their work via grossly inflated prices.



Experienced pro writers available on a wide variety of subjects for books, screenplays, speeches, etc.


We also accept payment via PayPal. In the case of large projects, we can work out payment plans.


Located in Los Angeles & the San Francisco Bay Area, California, but serving clients everywhere.
