Here’s a sampling of what my clients have said about my work as book ghostwriter or Book Coach:

“After I crashed on the Hudson River on US Airways Flight 1549, Kevin and I began working together on a reflective account of the experiences of 25 passengers and first responders. He kept all of us focused and united as friends. I cannot think of a more qualified, trustworthy, empathetic, and finally, kind, author to work with.”

“Writing a tribute for my husband with Kevin’s dedicated and caring help is the biggest thing I have ever done! It gave me a sense of purpose in being on my own.” ~Pearl Collis Kochan, author of TO JOHNIE WITH LOVE  

IN THE HANDS OF STRANGERS A World War II Story of Courage, Heroism and Enduring Friendship“For years I had been trying to get the book about my father and his dramatic World War II fighter pilot experience written. Then I contacted Kevin. His writing talent and expertise finally brought me to that light at the end of the tunnel!”

~Kim Moretto Niemeier, author of IN THE HANDS OF STRANGERS: A World War II Story of Courage, Heroism and Enduring Friendship

“At the time that my family contacted Kevin, my Mom had just died, and after 62 years of marriage my Dad was lost. Writing his memoirs (with the dedication to my Mom) with Kevin’s help not only gave him a purpose, a goal to achieve, it also allowed him to look back and see that his life had been meaningful and rich. I cannot say enough about Kevin’s sensitive, encouraging interviews with my Dad. We are thrilled with the book!” ~Mark Meyer, minister

“When I first decided on hiring a ghostwriter, it made sense to interview a bunch of them and finalize my choice based on the conversation and ‘feel’ I got when speaking with them. Instantly, I knew that I wanted to have Kevin help me write my story. We just clicked and it made so much sense. He helped turn my story into something I am proud of, and in turn it has helped jump-start my motivational speaking career. Thank you, Kevin, sincerely, for what you’ve done. I couldn’t have done it without you.”

~Logan Seelye, author of 10 AND 90: THE TACKLE THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING

“As teacher of my autobiographical writing class, Kevin’s style and approach reached into my soul. Since then our relationship has evolved from instructor to: guide, coach, motivator, protector, persuader, and finally – believer. His gentle motivation and superb skills enabled soul memories to flow from my hand onto paper. No Kevin, no book!”

~John Thomas, author of MY SAINTS ALIVE 

“Kevin helped me bring a lifelong dream to reality. His genuine enthusiasm for my project and his ability to role-play enabled me to transform my unusual story into a piece of writing that has been very well received. I highly recommend Kevin for your project.”

~Author of a book about a behind-the-scenes adventure with a highly-rated TV show

Life in the Slow Lane“Kevin helped me with my writing when I was a complete neophyte. His patience and insight were key in providing direction to my project and helped me remain motivated about my work. Kevin is both an excellent editor and a great teacher.”

~Thomas Sullivan, author of LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE: Surviving a Tour of Duty in Drivers Education


“When I started writing my memoir, Kevin Quirk’s sharp eye for editing was instrumental in giving my book direction. Upon completion of my manuscript, Kevin provided the lead that led me to one of the top, NYC-based literary agents. Needless to write, I couldn’t be happier with how Kevin helped me out!”

~Shawn Decker, author of MY PET VIRUS: The True Story of a Rebel Without a Cure
