Hi I’m Stefani!… published author and professional ghost

My name is Stefani Ruper, and I am a ghostwriter.

Here’s my deal:

I’m an author. I’m really good at writing books.

But I have a problem: I don’t like being famous. I tried it, once. I published two books (Victory Belt and Harper Collins, publishers), co-hosted one of the top health and fitness podcasts, was a health and fitness influencer, and ran a website that received millions of visitors a year.

But after I finished my PhD and kept trying to write more books, I realized I just really didn’t like my name in lights.

Your name, tho?

That’s a whole different story. I am a ghostwriter because I am excellent at research and writing – but I no longer like doing it for me.

My passion is using my talent to help you pursue your own goals and flourishing.

My expertise

So my expertise comprises

▫️ writing projects of any length – from 1,000 to 100,000 words. 

▫️ writing quickly – I finished the first draft of my first book (100,000 words/350 pages) in 5 days.

▫️ writing on self-help, spirituality, health and fitness, personal wellness – I have a PhD in religion and philosophy and have written two books on women’s health

▫️ research  – my most recent job was as a research associate at Harvard

▫️ capturing your voice – I am very empathetic and use that talent to figure out how to write to make your personality shine through

My mission

I am a ghostwriter because I love writing, and I love helping empower people to achieve their goals. Ghostwriting is the perfect gig for me. At the heart of it is how joyful I feel when I get to use my skills to help you flourish.
