Phoenix native, ghostwriter Joey Robert Parks, possesses a knack for gleaning the most pertinent, authentic, and interesting aspects about a person.
His own writing voice – colorful and well-researched, frequently weaving together historical facts with an actual sensory experience – evaporates when he translates a client’s verbal conversation into a writing style that is instantly recognizable to even the client’s close friends. Slipping effortlessly between narrative voices naturally produces fruit in Parks’ other areas of expertise: feature profiles and fiction, editing and non-fiction, idea conception and innovation.
It’s not hard to understand why he’s been hired to ghostwrite more than a dozen books for clients such as: George Benson’s fashion designer and stylist; a millionaire mortgage broker; a multi-millionaire philanthropist; a woman diagnosed with terminal spinal cancer; a 39-year old recovering alcoholic; and even another ghostwriter.
Of all the characteristics wordsmith Parks embodies, two in particular, resonate throughout: an amazing enthusiasm that makes working with him fun and a skill that is very rare indeed – the ability to take complex ideas and communicate them to the reader in a way that makes perfect sense.
