About Melinda

Melinda Copp is a freelance nonfiction book ghostwriter based in Bluffton, South Carolina. She specializes in helping aspiring authors get clear on the real story they were meant to tell, organizing their material in a powerful way, and then using the client’s ideas to write an engaging and compelling book that delivers their big message.

Melinda’s first ghostwriting gig was working as a professional ghostwriter’s editorial assistant. Since then, she’s had three children, started her own editorial business, and ghostwritten ten books on a wide range of topics. Recent projects include:

  • A high-level college athlete’s memoir about pushing too hard to succeed, burning out, and then returning to the sport she loved with a more balanced outlook on life and competition.
  • A professional speaker’s motivational book for women who are stuck in negative thought patterns and cycles of failure.
  • A retired heart surgeon’s memoir about being raised abroad, fleeing political revolution in Iran, and working to advance the cardiac surgery field in the sixties and seventies.
  • A breast cancer survivor’s memoir about her family history with the disease and reclaiming womanhood after her mastectomy.
  • A doctor’s nutrition and wellness lifestyle book for people suffering from chronic degenerative disease.
  • A book of real-world, unconventional wisdom on entrepreneurship and how to succeed in any business by two successful tech entrepreneurs.

Melinda is most interested in ghostwriting memoir and self-help books for commercial reading audiences. She has an MFA in creative nonfiction writing from Goucher College and a BS in journalism from West Virginia University. 

When Melinda isn’t ghostwriting and working with her clients, she’s probably playing with her kids outside, blogging at Life List, or working tirelessly on her own manuscript.
