My name is Emma Murray and I am a best-selling, award-winning author, novelist and ghostwriter, specialising in psychology, business, and higher education. I work with MDs, entrepreneurs, management consultants, psychologists and university professors to help create written works designed to enhance reputations, build connections and generate wider interest.


I started my own writing business over 10 years ago following a long career as a marketing executive in investment banking and it has given me the experience and drive to work with other professionals on their writing projects.


Writing isn’t easy – it takes a lot of hard work and constant practice, and like anything worthwhile, you need to love it in order to do it well.


For professionals, writing is even harder because of busy work pressures and schedules.


Getting help is the first step to finally articulating what has been in your head for months or possibly years.


Nothing quite beats the satisfaction of seeing your own thoughts and philosophies in black and white.


I am a professional ghostwriter and the author of bestselling business book “The Unauthorized Guide to Doing Business the Alan Sugar Way”, the lead author of “How to Succeed as a Freelancer in Publishing”, and the co-author of three university textbooks: “Management” (Wiley, 2016), “Organizational Behavior” (Sage, 2017) and the double award-winning textbook,”Entrepreneurship: The Practice and Mindset” (Sage, 2018). My debut novel, “Time Out” is available to pre-order here. 


Emma is also a founding member of United Ghostwriters – a marketplace that showcases a small group of talented and experienced UK ghostwriters, dedicated to the art of helping you write your book and express your ideas in your voice.
