About Me
Andrea Cagan Writer

I’ve been editing, collaborating, writing and ghost writing for decades. As a best selling author, I have worked with royalty, news anchors, rock and rollers, wounded warriors, motivational speakers, gold medal winners, and award winning musicians.

Whether I’m coaching a client, teaching a writing seminar, editing a manuscript, or dreaming up a novel, I search for the humor and pathos in everything, do my best to spin it into gold, and place it on the printed page. My work brings me satisfaction, challenges, and a lot of laughs. I've  finished my book, Memoirs of a Ghost. Check out my great review on Kirkus.

Now, I'm telling my own story. Learn More

Creativity Equals Happiness

In a world where violence and insane politics seem to reign, I have found that for me, my only true happiness exists with artistic creativity.
