No, I don’t write fan fiction. As a ghostwriter for an entertainment company that produced book and television series for teens and young adults, I wrote 10 YA novels during a five-year period. My books have been translated into 13 languages, shown up on bestseller lists, and spawned mega-successful television shows (that were already in production before I came on and have little to do with the novels themselves). Because of an ironclad contract, I can’t reveal the actual names of the series, but trust me when I say you’ve heard of them.
And yes, I use the phrase my books, even though it’s not correct.
One ghostwriter speaks about their experience - Anna Davies talks about her experience writing a not one but TWO YA series for someone else… it’s easy money, the pay-off is larger in other ways. Well worth a read, followed by checking out Anna’s own book.
