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

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.
