About Me
Andrea Cagan Writer

I’ve been writing, ghost writing, collaborating, and editing for three decades. A best selling author many times over, I have worked with royalty, news anchors, rock stars, movie stars, wounded warriors, motivational speakers, and gold medal winners.

My classes and seminars are my focus now, as I combine practical information with my personal discoveries to help writers find their authenticity and keep the words flowing. I believe that writing can be a joyful experience and I pass that on to my students in an encouraging and playful atmosphere where we all help each other become better writers.

Memoirs of a Ghost

One Sheet Away

To be a ghostwriter means to work unseen—to hide in the shadows while others claim your words as their own. When a book is finished, you are a phantasm—a waft of literary smoke that dissolves into the ethers. I've lent my ghostwriting services to celebrities in every walk of life, including rock stars and movie stars, news anchors and divas, award-winning athletes and motivational speakers. Now, I'm telling my own story. Learn More

Fighting Obsession

Did you ever get a tune stuck in your head that you can't get rid of? It’s a Small Worldin Disneyland comes to mind. I dread hearing that song and even as I write this blog, I can feel it trying to take root in my brain. When I hear the ad for JG Wentworth on TV, I try to hit the mute button before they start singing so I can avoid repeating it to myself all day.

When you hear these short ditties, they bombard your brain and you start repeating them over and over. That’s called good advertising, exactly what the marketers want. They want their product embedded in your brain and a catchy tune is a great way to do it. The ads are harmless in the long run, but there are other forms of obsessions that are harmful and can make your life a living hell.
