Barbara MaCKAY

A ghostwriter, author, and marketing professional, I work 1:1 with you to generate and validate ideas for your on-brand book; create a detailed outline; and develop a positioning strategy. We work together to focus your concept and clarify your writing, creating a book you can take to market with confidence.

I’ve written hundreds of articles for mainstream publications in Canada, the USA, and worldwide and authored or ghostwritten nonfiction books, including how-to, self-help, guidebooks, and memoir.

As a marketing-communications business leader for 20 years, I guided award-winning marketing strategies and creative and defined brands for clients in tech, media, healthcare, and finance.

The HOW TO WRITE A BOOK Book, It’s Not about the Writing available in digital or paper wherever you buy your books.
