Ghost writers for hire UK – StoryTerrace ghost writers for hire

Hi and thanks for visiting my website – my name is Matthew Cooper and I’m a BAFTA shortlisted script writer for hire  and UK script consultant.

I specialise in writing scripts and screenplays for clients who contact me.  Some of this work is done as a ghost writer (basically without credit).   I’ve written and rewritten TV and produced feature films (that don’t have my name anywhere on the credits). It’s my bread and butter living to do this.

Hire a ghost writer for your story

Most of the time I work with UK and US film industry producers and directors, but anyone can hire me, if you can match my budget and I think the project has merit. So, that means you. You can hire me to ghost write a script or screenplay for you (based on your own story).

Some people who approach me to write a screenplay – hoping to see their story get made into a film or TV series.  Sometimes these people are unsure as to whether a film script or a self-published book is the best way to get their story across.

If you’re looking for a ghost writer for book or novel – I’d recommend a UK company called StoryTerrace

StoryTerrace – professional ghost writing service

StoryTerrace are a professional ghost writing service who offer a complete package to get your story written up by a professional writer, proofed, stylishly designed and published to your own personal specification.

If you’re trying to decide between getting a screenplay written or getting a book ghost written I’ve put together a comprehensive blogpost which explains the best way forward.   The blog post is useful if you’re trying to decide if a ghost written screenplay or ghost written book is the best way to present your story.

My story as a Netflix or Amazon series

A lot of people who approach me, do have a true story that they think will make a great series for Netflix or Amazon – and some of those people are right – but to get the script or book in front of companies like Netflix or Amazon is often quite complicated (if not near impossible). Again, my blog post on how to decided between ghost written screen or ghost written book explains why.  

If you’re unsure of the best way forward – contact me on  – or follow this link to speak to the friendly team at Storyterrace.
