My client for this book, Dr. Foster Mobley, wanted something unlike any of the other 270,000 leadership books on the shelves. My solution was a mystical, journey-based parable that encompassed the tenets of his Wisdom Leading philosophy. The book, which came out in 2011, won the 2011 Independent Press Award Gold Medal for the Business category.

The Brand Called You began life as an extremely successful self-published book in 2002, selling more than 60,000 copies, half of those in Asia. In 2008, Peter Montoya and I "flipped" it to McGraw-Hill, added new material, and brought it to a wider market. It remains required reading in the field of personal branding.

This was one of my favorite projects, which came out in 2010 from St. Martin's Press. Jim Cole was a self-taught expert in grizzly bears who gave up a real estate career to move to Montana and spend his life studying the grizzly. In 2007, he was mauled by a bear while hiking alone in Yellowstone and managed, while blind and bleeding, to hike to safely. Despite losing his left eye in the attack, Jim remained dedicated to the welfare of the grizzly. I was lucky enough to hike with him to the attack site and to get to know this wonderful man, who passed away shortly after the book came out.

I co-wrote this sports memoir with Chris "Macca" McCormack, the two-time Ironman World Champion and the greatest triathlete in the history of the sport. We had a great time chronicling his journey from Australian kid to world-class athlete. The book came out in the U.S., Germany, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, and came out in paperback in May 2013.

It landed DeVon on "Super Soul Sunday" with Oprah Winfrey. DeVon and his wife, Meagan Good, and I are currently working on a sequel.

About Me:
I'm a ghostwriter. Since 2004 I've been helping other people write their nonfiction books to bolster their brand, share their story or just fulfill a lifelong dream. In that time I've worked with world-class athletes, entrepreneurs, Pentecostal bishops, Nobel laureates, Hollywood producers, TV legends, doctors, financial planners and more to create the perfect book to help them reach their audiences. I've written more than 45 books and had 15 of them published with major New York publishers.
For my work, I've trekked into Yellowstone to the site of a grizzly attack, crewed endurance athletes on a five-day, five-Ironman odyssey, learned about everything from psychology to how skincare products are formulated, and met some of the most incredible people in this world. I'm a lucky man,...
