About Me

Hey, I'm Bryan Johnston, and I've been a full-time ghostwriter since 2013. In that time, I've written for a wide variety of clients, and my work has appeared on personal blogs, company websites, and some of the biggest platforms in their respective industries.

My Work

As a ghostwriter, though, my writing rarely if ever carries my name. And that can obviously make it difficult to "show" it. Bound by confidentiality agreements, I usually can't even point to something and whisper "that's mine", either. Below are a few examples from early in my career that do have my name on the byline to give you some sense of my style.

But be sure to visit my blog to see more recent examples of my writing.
