Hannah Renier is an experienced ghost writer who will talk about how she tackles ghost writing. Drawing on over 20 years experience she will take us through the processes of absorbing someone else’s life, the ups and downs of such writing and share her insights into what makes a successful piece of ‘ghosted’ writing. She’ll ask us to do some writing as part of the evening.
Hannah is a ghost-writer, writer, historian and researcher. She has earned her living by writing and researching since 1984 and has ghosted books (under Authors' names) published by Penguin, Tempus, Virgin, the History Press and Historical Publications to glowing reviews. She has also ghost-written many self-published books, either non-fiction or faction, about – for instance – diet and exercise, business intrigue, imprisonment in Libya, medicine in Saudi Arabia, good-old-boyism in Ireland, corruption in Central America, bribery in Indonesia and even hairdressing in Southend. Almost everything she has written has been produced under conditions of anonymity and with no share in copyright. She's a member of the Society of Authors (since 1989) and two other authors' associations, and of three London history societies.
