Summary of Experience
Looking for a ghost blogger or ghostwriter for your book or eBook?

Joleene has the experience, the knowledge, and the know-how to write your book for you. Not only is she an author of 3 books of her own, she has penned over a dozen books. She specializes in self-help books, memoirs, and books for content marketers and online entrepreneurs.

The best part is, she knows what it takes to ask all the right questions and write all the right words. How? She is a former television reporter and anchor.

In this role, Joleene was responsible for writing and editing news content for the greater Central New York region. She learned how crucial it was to create stories that were quick, concise, and to the point. Viewers needed content that was accurate and could inform. Joleene delivered. Thanks to her quick wit and journalistic integrity, it wasn't long before her storytelling skills opened the eyes of a local business magazine editor. Soon she was writing for the publication, turning out well-balanced, highly informative articles on a regular basis.

Since jumping on board the magazine in 2005, the publication, once called "Absolutely Business", has moved through the hands of two different owners and five editors. Today it is called "NYY Business" and with its sister magazines "NYY Living" and "NYY Living Premiere Homes", the publication is circulated to more than 32,000 readers in Northern New York. Online views average between 6,000 and 8,000 a month.

When Joleene left local news to start her own writing business in 2010, she took her love of writing with her. She became an inspirational columnist for "CNY Woman Magazine" (no longer in circulation) and resource writer for eHow.com. In 2012 she self-published her first book, "Memoirs of Normalcy: Journey From Sedentary to Extraordinary." The book became popular among fellow entrepreneurs, speakers, and writers, as it encouraged them to follow passions and desires to create their own deliberate life; a concept that mainstream culture still struggles to grasp.

Her most recent accolades include the production of her first stage play, "Visiting Bammy Lewis." The holiday comedy was produced at the CNY Playhouse in Syracuse, New York in December of 2014 and received generous reviews. In 2015 she turned out two Amazon eBooks ('How To Find and Create Paid Speaking Opportunities' and "How To Write a Talk that Sells"), as well as a screenplay titled, "Letters To Frank." The screenplay was considered in July of 2016 for The Writers Lab, a screenplay development program funded by Meryl Streep. The script was not accepted. Joleene continues to hone the script and pitch it for production, confident she will one day sell a story for all the world to see.
