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

From Baby Boomers to Millennials

I teach a weekly writing class for about eight students. I keep it small because it’s in my home and I want time to give attention to each person, listening to their pieces that they write and read in class and making encouraging comments. The same people come back week after week, and we are diverse: African Americans, gay and straight men, and single women, ranging from ages 29 to 82.

We came from different generations, we had different family environments, we came from different parts of the country, and our lines of work were varied. How will they ever understand each other? I wondered before the first class. Will they connect and be instrumental in helping each other learn and grow? Or will they feel disconcerted and unsafe? Will they embrace the diversity or feel stunted by it?
