Jeni Fred is an author in her own right, but today we're talking about how she became a ghost writer. You can learn more about the services she provides at https://ghostwritergirl.com My biggest takeaway from this interview is that it is okay to hate a certain part of being a writer or an author. Find the part that makes you happy and be okay with hiring someone else to do the part you don't like.
