Cindy Childress, Ph. D. is The Expert’s Ghostwriter and developed the Write Your Book Blueprint™. She founded Childress Business Communication to offer boutique book writing services to specialized experts who want to write books to create a legacy in content. Her clients, including international bestselling authors, rave about her careful listening, belief in their books, and proven process to make their ideas sound even better than they imagined—and just as if they’d written the words themselves.

She’s a member of The Nonfiction Authors Association, Copy Chief, and The Writer’s League of Texas. As an independent scholar, she presents creative writing and theories of writing at literary conferences, most recently the Louisville Conference on Languages and Literature. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Western Kentucky University, where she studied Writing and Communication. Her M.A. in English is from the University of South Florida. She attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and completed an English generalist Ph. D. with a creative dissertation. 

You can join her in Paris this fall for her Business, Books, and Belief writing retreat for people ready to tell your story, but not sure where to start. She also teaches creative writing classes with Writespace Houston and fosters dogs and cats with Citizens for Animal Protection.
