What Do Clients Say?

“I have just finished the book. All I can say is, wow! I absolutely love it. I had no idea it would be so gripping. Tony, you’ve done an excellent job with some brilliant raw material!”
Iain Dale, LBC, Sky News and MD of Biteback Publishing.

“I have nothing in common with Tony Horne, but we have become inseparable. He is a workaholic who can write brilliance at speed. I promise he will do your book justice, and get into your head. He’s that good that after about a week, you’ll find he is just finishing your sentences for you. If you have a story, I really do urge you to email this man.”
Craig Summers, High Risk Team BBC.

“I have to say, I can think of no better endorsement for the book than to recount the fact that, at 5am on Tuesday morning as I was proofreading at the fag end of an all-nighter, I was still really appreciating the book, despite it being the fourth time I’d read it… By the time I got to the trial material I was flagging, But the skill and humour in your writing pulled me through.”
Sam Carter, Commissioning Editor, One World.

”If you need to tell your story to someone who understands its sensitivities and you need to turn it around quickly, I would only recommend this man. For accuracy, speed, pathos, wit, turn of phrase, and for guiding you through the whole process, we really couldn’t have made a better choice in inviting a stranger into our lives.”
Kath Rathband

“It’s a pleasure to work with a professional author who writes with such openness and insight. We’re delighted that Tony chooses to publish with us…”
Jeremy Thompson, MD, Troubador Publishing Ltd

“I knew as soon as I started reading it that Tony’s work on David Rathband’s book was top-class. He is an excellent ghostwriter, with a brilliant eye for detail and the ability to capture his subject’s voice perfectly.”
Humfrey Hunter

“At the Ghostwriters Unite conference Tony shared the reality of reaching inside other people’s lives that comes when you commit to telling their stories and truly follow through on that commitment. He showed us the kind of raw and real integrity that we all should strive to achieve in our reporting, writing, and for that matter living.”
Dave Patterson – www.bookscreated.com

“It was great having Tony at the Ghostwriters Unite! conference. His professional insights, realism and humour on the panels made them informative and engaging. Hope to see him back next year.”
Julie Diane Moore – http://moorethanjustwords.blogspot.co.uk

“Tony is a gifted storyteller, with a keen eye for details that make a story pop. He takes mundane events and turns them into compelling narrative, told from a perspective that keeps readers engaged. He has big stories to share in the world, starting with small hooks”
Helen Chang – CEO and Senior ghostwriterAuthorBridgeMedia.com

“Tony was one of a panel of four who gave a mini-conference at the 2013 Ghostwriters Conference (Convention) in Long Beach, California. In terms of his dedication to what he was there to do at that given time, he was way out in front of the pack with respect to staying ‘down to earth’ and completely out of his own way, as well as listening and responding pointedly to the concerns of the attendees. Not knowing Tony otherwise, I’d say that it’s easily a substantive guess that he conducts himself and his professional affairs in a like manner. I hope to stay in contact with Tony for some time to come.”
Paul Bobino – www.booksbybovino.com

“Tony Horne is that rare combination of genuine and genius. Whether in print or in person, his genius in artfully telling people’s stories draws you into a whole other world—the one he’s created—and won’t let you go. But once you understand the heart he puts into every single tale, you can’t help but be moved by his genuine spirit. What an awesome person to work with.”
Derek Lewis – www.dereklewis.com

“It’s no accident that Tony Horne is the UK’s most in demand ghostwriter. Not only is he smart, fast and talented, he’ll mind meld with you so that he truly understands your story. And he’ll capture that story so authentically that when you read it, you’ll feel as if you wrote it yourself. I fully expect his work to show up on bestseller lists in the U.S. any day now.” Toni Robino, New York Times Bestselling Ghostwriter

“Tony Horne was an amusing and appealing speaker at the first international conference of ghostwriters, Ghostwriters Unite, at Long Beach in California in May. His anecdotes about writing the compelling stories of others were memorable. Everyone was particularly impressed with his Skype hook-up with one of the subjects of his book.”
Libby Harkness, Australia’s Leading Ghostwriter

“Tony is a first-class ghostwriter, and appeared at our literature festival in 2012. He engaged the audience by giving them a vivid insight into the process of ghost writing a book, and how close emotional and personal connections are forged with the ‘author’ behind the actual story. Tony delivered a fascinating talk which appealed to a new demographic, not routinely seen at our literary events.”
Richard Aird, Senior Officer Library Services, West Dunbartonshire Council

“Tony truly understands people, plain and simple. From the moment you meet him, you find yourself telling him your life story without even realising it! That’s one of the biggest reasons why he’s such an extraordinary writer. He captivates the raw essence of your story and keeps the reader hooked page after page. Tony is fearless. No story is too gritty nor is any one person too challenging for him. I am privileged to know Tony both personally and professionally. If he writes your story, you’re one of the lucky ones.”
Steven Weiss-Smith, Founder – BioNovel, Inc.

“Tony Horne is a fantastic fast-working ghost who focusses the mind.”
Steve Brookstein, X Factor winner 2004
