About Kevin Quirk

As Your Book Ghostwriter, I offer a blend of professional skills, extensive experience and a diverse life perspective.

Brace for Impact

By age 12, I had firmly set my career goal to be a sports reporter. I went on to earn a journalism degree from Boston University and spent 12 years as a professional journalist, mostly for The Charlotte Observer where I enjoyed charting the success of Mike Krzyzewski and Michael Jordan.

Then, after taking a break from writing while working for an educational center at the forefront of personal and social change, I had an inspiration to write a book about “sportsaholism.” Writing my first book was an exciting but daunting challenge, but I pulled it off and learned a ton along the way. That led to a new idea: helping other people write books! Suddenly I was a ghostwriter.

I began helping women and men of all ages and backgrounds tell the most important stories of their lives. I also started assisting dedicated professionals in sharing tools and wisdom for making the world a better place. This sparked my passion for ghostwriting meaningful books for people like you.

Not Now, Honey, I'm Watching the Game

When my first book Not Now, Honey, I’m Watching the Game was published, I was whisked around the country on a 17-day media whirlwind that was a bit crazy but totally exciting. But today, as a book ghostwriter, I get just as excited when I stand beside the authors I assist as they bring their new book into the world. Their enthusiasm, and the positive response from those who read their books, remind me of why I do this work.

Your Life is a Book

I have ghostwritten about 30 books and coached or edited dozens of others, in addition to the five books that I have authored or co-authored myself. In my work with Your Book Ghostwriter, I’m an active member of these two professional organizations:

I’m excited to have brought on board Darlene Schneck, a colleague with extensive experience as a book graphic designer who will provide book cover design and interior formatting and preparation for publishing. Contact me for a quote on a package fee that includes these vital services!

I’ve always kept my fees within the median range of professional book ghostwriters to serve people from all backgrounds. Currently, I am offering a 20% discount on all my services to military veterans. I have extensive experience working with families telling diverse and engaging stories of World War II and other military campaigns from many perspectives.

One of the recent books that I ghostwrote won a First Place in category from the Chanticleer International Book Awards! Other book projects include: a highly accomplished professional chronicles her inspirational story of surviving a childhood in a state mental hospital and living on the streets of a big city as a runaway. Two lifelong friends and business partners celebrate their company’s 30-year anniversary. A health professional presents diverse healing options for women recovering from trauma.

Other noteworthy credits: “In the Hands of Strangers: A World War II Story of Courage, Heroism and Enduring Friendship” by Kim Moretto Niemeier and “The Day the Musick Died: A Mother-Daughter Addiction Journey of Suffering, Loss and a Ray of Hope” by Cheryl Hughes Musick. Both these books tell compelling inspirational stories. “10 and 90: The Tackle That Changed Everything” by Logan Seelye highlights the author’s attitude that brought him joy and success after a football injury destroyed his dreams of playing pro football. “Farewell, Berlin: My World War II Story of Surviving Hitler’s Germany and Embracing Life in America” by Wolfram Forster tells a unique and remarkable story about that time when lives throughout Europe were turned upside down. Other books: “Life Reset: The Awareness Integration Path to Create the Life You Want” by Foojan Zeine; “Reflections of a Servant Leader: My Journey as the Longest Serving Airman in U.S. Air Force History” by Major General (retired) Alfred K. Flowers; “Who’s Your Higher Power?” by Dawn V. Obrecht, M.D.

Personally, I’m a Baby Boom dad trying to keep up with my teenage son. I lived all over the U.S. before settling in Charlottesville, Virginia. As a family, we were able to take a 110-day around-the-world voyage with Semester at Sea.

Thank you for visiting my website and considering my services for whatever your book project happens to be and wherever you may live. I enjoy traveling to new locations as ghostwriter, and I value the opportunity to enter the world of authors and the places their books may go.

Will your book be next?
