Jeremy Blachman / Ghostwriter


“Jeremy is a unicorn, it’s that simple. He has the raw intellect to go deep on any subject, and the creative genius to help you surface your voice. Writing a book is arduous, and no one can sustain the same level of enthusiasm. Through all the ebbs and flows, Jeremy ratchets up and down his level of intensity to meet your needs at that moment. There’s no pride of authorship, just commitment to producing something great however you get there. It’s hard to imagine someone capable of caring more about your book than even you do, but that’s how it feels to work with Jeremy; if I had made the mistake of choosing someone else to work with, my book would have been half as good.”

“Jeremy and I have worked closely together and there’s very simply no finer professional or person I would select as a partner for any project. Jeremy is a rare individual who has an incredible ability to content create, organize, story-tell, and smoothly connect everything together to inspire, teach, and move an audience. Said differently, Jeremy has a phenomenal blend of high IQ and EQ and he uses each at the appropriate times—not only in his work, but in his interactions. I love working with Jeremy and the finest compliment I can pay anyone is that Jeremy would be my first pick for anything in the future.”

Jeremy Blachman is a ghostwriter, novelist, and screenwriter who has developed projects with major publishers and television studios, and has been called “a very funny writer” by The Wall Street Journal.

As a ghostwriter and collaborator, I work with business leaders, academics, and prominent figures on collaborations for major publishers as well as hybrid and self-published projects.

Under my own name, I am a twice-published novelist.

My first book, ANONYMOUS LAWYER (published by Henry Holt), a satire of a large corporate law firm, was given a four-star review by The New York Post (“Stocked with up-to-the-minute references, and exposing, as it does, our culture’s mania to win at all costs, Anonymous Lawyer has pierced the heart of a moment in our social history”).

The book was developed for television by Sony and NBC, has been published in seven languages, and was in development for film off a screenplay I wrote.

My second novel, THE CURVE (co-written with Cameron Stracher), a satire about a for-profit law school, was also developed for television with NBC.

I have been published by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Republic, McSweeney’s, and elsewhere.

(More about Anonymous Lawyer at my parody law firm site, Anonymous Law Firm. Or by reading the original Anonymous Lawyer blog I began while a student at Harvard Law School.)  I also blogged about my law school experience here.
