Looking for a ghostwriter or biographer?
Thanks for thinking of me.
I enjoy working as a biographer,
ghostwriter, or co-author. Most of my biography work has been in the
entertainment field, and I've assisted with all sorts of memoirs and
practical nonfiction books.
My basic bio is here,
but you can e-mail me for a more detailed résumé. In short, I'm
the author of 19 books, with three more on the way, and their categories
include: celebrity biography, parenting, memoir, Christian memoir, true crime,
self-help, health, psychology, and reference. I've
worked with many top publishers, and editors tend to take me with
them when they play musical chairs.

Rather than telling you all the great stuff
about why I'm so easy to work with and what a super writer I am, I'll let other people
talk for me. Here you have it:
her stellar work on The Marilyn Monroe Treasures, Jenna is
the type of writer I am always trying to find projects for. She
is an editor’s joy: she consistently produces fresh, clean, and
compelling prose, meets every deadline, and pours herself
wholeheartedly into the success of the project. I would recommend
Jenna instantly to anyone looking for a strong and flexible writer
for any subject.”

"I worked with Jenna on The
Pregnancy Project, a memoir she wrote with Gaby Rodriguez. Jenna
is incredibly professional and managed to write—and revise!—a
fabulous manuscript under a very tight schedule. The quality of her
work is superb and she is nice on top of it! Working with Jenna has
been a joy all around, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to
anyone in need of a professional non-fiction writer."
--Zareen Jaffery, editor, Simon
“Jenna Glatzer’s strengths lie not only
in her remarkably accessible and personable writing style, but also
in her ability to take the initiative in promoting and marketing her
work. We at Nomad have voted her our favorite author. She’s a
strong and vibrant writer, and never misses a deadline. She accepts
constructive criticism with an open mind, revises with ease, and is
incredibly easy to work with. She’s about as enthusiastic a person
as you may ever meet, and we hope to work with her for many
projects to come.”
--Lauri Berkenkamp, editor, Nomad Press
you for your excellent work on Unthinkable by Scott Rigsby. The
manuscript you created made our job here simple and straightforward.
Yes, I would expect that from a professional writer, but no, I do
not take it for granted. I greatly appreciate it."
--Dave Lindstedt, Senior Editor, Tyndale
in my life have I wanted a journalist, a writer, to talk to me
again. It’s hard for me to open up and trust. This is
the first time I called to say, ‘I want to see her. Ask her
if she wants to see me again.’ There’s something about you.”
--Céline Dion, Céline Dion: For Keeps (Andrews McMeel)
couldn’t stop reading the manuscript. It’s so well written, so
good. It was really emotional for me at some times to read what you
had written. You captured Céline
so well and I’m really proud of you for doing that. I just wanted
to thank you.”

knew Jenna Glatzer was going to be a good writer, but I just
didn’t know HOW good. She was and is absolutely amazing to work
with. She brings obvious skill to the table, but she also does
things the right way. She is always timely and professional. I
thought this project was going to be laborious and seemingly
impossible, but she made it happen. Her skill, insight, relentless
work ethic, and positive attitude guided the project along smoothly.
After my initial conversations with Jenna, I knew a great book would
be produced, but what I didn’t know was that I would gain an even

choice in a co-writer could not have been more on the mark. Jenna
Glatzer is a fabulous person and writer. She was able to take
volumes of material, discussions, and information and synthesize it
into words that made this process feel easy when compared to my
first book. Her experiences and passion about this topic, her talent
and style made me enjoy this work so much more than I already do.
Although I knew Jenna was the right one to partner with from the
beginning, my respect and admiration for her continue to grow.”

know in my heart that God hand picked you to help write His story
and the role that I played in it. You did an amazing job. I could
not have done it without you. I treasure the time we spent together.
I am so blessed to have worked with you, but even more blessed to
have made a friend in you for life.”

has given me a newfound hope on life. The story I needed to share
with the world needed a lot of work! I knew she was perfect from the
first telephone conversation. After many talks and e-mails, we
finally met in person. I appreciated her professionalism to stay on
task throughout my stay, which could not have been so easy with me.
My story is my lifeline; without it I would be lost. I will never be
able to thank her enough for helping me to help others. I never
realized what it took to become the successful author that she is.
What touches my heart the most is to witness the wonderful mom she
is to her little girl. I am proud and honored to call Jenna my
