Objective: Ghostwriter

Overall Writing Philosophy:

I am a communicator, verbally and through the written word.  I am a multi-genre writer: Fiction, nonfiction, articles about complex subjects, blogs, newsletters. I take a subject and give it a spark that provides clarity, readability, enlightenment and enjoyment. My favorite work involves high end, heavily researched projects,  memoirs, books on any subject, novels, autobiographies. My clients become close friends.

Writing Experience:

1. Personal publishing and Ghostwriting credits

Riches to Rags, Why Rich Celebrities and Pro-Athletes Go Broke and How to Avoid It.  This simple how-to book on money management applies to anyone, but is designed to help suddenly wealthy celebs and athletes survive their financial success and grow their money.

Here is what Dr. Pecoraro said about my work:

“I hired LD Sledge as a ghostwriter for a book about financial management. I can’t speak highly enough about his work! Besides being a great writer and a thorough researcher on the subject of the book, he was always open to suggestions I had on additions and changes to make the book better and better. He put long hours writing and rewriting to deliver far more than expected! He continually kept in communication with me and was very easy to work with. He made this an interesting and exciting experience for me. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants help in writing a book. He took my ideas and opinions and brought them to life with colorful language and detailed descriptions. Thanks LD! I not only got a great book out of your work but a great friend!”
