A ghostwriter is a professional writer whose published work is credited to another person. One famous ghostwriter is Andrew Neiderman.[1] He was hired by the estate of V. C. Andrews, who died in 1986. Niederman completed the "Casteel" series of books and continues writing books credited to Andrews.[2]

Ghostwriters are paid a fee to help write the autobiographies of celebrities, athletes and politicians. They also help write letters, song lyrics, magazine and news articles that get published under someone else's name.
