The true strength of our agency is our stable of writing partners. It’s not just the quantity – 2,000 and counting – but the quality and diversity of our network that sets us apart. Our writers’ books have been published by every top publishing house. Their bylines have appeared in the world’s widest-read publications.

Our writers have partnered on hundreds of bestselling and award-winning books, published by Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, and many others. Their work is regularly featured in the Harvard Business Review, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and dozens of other elite magazines, journals, and platforms. And they have worked with the likes of GE, IBM, Pepsi, and CITI; McKinsey, Booz Hamilton, Boston Consulting, and Price Waterhouse Coopers; the Rockefeller, Ford, and Clinton foundations; the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, and the IMF; and many other elite agencies and organizations.


Our agency is equally proud of what we have been able to do with all this world-class talent and knowledge – our record of 300-plus successful matches.

What makes us most proud are the stories our clients tell about us – and the value of our partnerships. Here are some of the testimonials we have received from a diverse cross-section of the authors and speakers whose stories and ideas we have helped bring to life.

We engaged Gotham Ghostwriters to help us — an international group of 13 leaders — to find a ghostwriter that could assist us to collectively write a book proposal on the history and impact of the global women’s funding movement. It was important for our group that the ghostwriter have an understanding and appreciation for the book subject, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to translate 13 diverse voices into one collective voice. Michael Signorelli and Nate Roberson were incredibly helpful and patient throughout the entire process. They made themselves available for questions and conversations with our Committee, to make sure that we found the right writer for the project. We were so pleased with their services, that we decided to engage them for the agent search as well. We would highly recommend them.

Gotham Ghostwriters’ personalized offering is second to none, and a rare find. Dan Gerstein and his team have successfully channeled years of experience, knowledge, and relationships into a rich offering, delivering expertise and efficiency to clients. Their dedication to quality is a cornerstone of the business and truly valued.

Stephanie Breedlove, Co-Founder Homepay by Breedlove

From the first time I contacted Gotham Ghostwriters, they have been responsive and extremely helpful. In a world where there is a lot of bad advice on blogs and websites, it is a relief to find people who know what they are doing and give sound direction. They helped me take an idea and make it a reality by providing me with not only their good judgment, but also finding me others who could enhance my work. I heartily recommend Gotham Ghostwriters.

Rick Ridder, leading Democratic political consultant

Working with Gotham Ghostwriters is always a great experience. They are excellent communicators and incredibly supportive and results-oriented. The writers they have recommended for my projects are experienced and strong, and bring out the best in our authors. I highly recommend GG to anyone looking for a genuine, collaborative partnership on their project.

Carrie Jones, Director of Production at Greenleaf Book Group

Gotham President, Dan Gerstein, is a unique triple threat — a brilliant writer, a wise and savvy political analyst, and probably the best press and media communications strategist I have ever met. I have known and worked with many people who are excellent at one or two of these skills — but there’s no one else like Dan, who has all three at a level that simply doesn’t get any better. Dan Gerstein is the first person I would recommend to anyone in politics or the corporate or nonprofit worlds in need of writing, political analysis, or communications strategy — or any combination of the three.
