“The first book I ghostwrote after Lynne’s course became a national best-seller in its first week.

Now, after Lynne took me through the fine-points, the protocols, and her detailed system, I not only have the knowledge and skills to be a business ghostwriter, but the confidence to be a prolific one as well. If you are in the business of helping clients to write --I highly recommend Lynne Klippel and her gentle, yet strong and solid teachings. "
