Michael McKown

Michael McKown began his writing and editing career in the US Navy starting in 1966 where he served as a journalist. In 1976, he co-founded the United Schutzhund Clubs of America and created its bimonthly magazine. In 1978, he founded a monthly specialty magazine at which he served as editor and publisher for over 20 years. He branched off into digital publishing in 1998 where he served as writer and editor for 12 years. For eight of those years, he also wrote, produced and directed many feature-length videos.

While still involved with that business, he teamed up with a young book editor in 2002 to form Ghostwriters Central. This company has fulfilled the writing needs of an endless assortment of clients, from high-profile figures to new authors. That young book editor was instrumental in bringing Ghostwriters Central to the forefront of professional writing services and was part of the company for 15 long years. He has since moved on but other extremely-talented writers have recently joined the firm.

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.

The company

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,



Headquartered in the Los Angeles, CA, area but helping clients everywhere with the best possible service.
