About me

Ryan Peter. Writer.

I’m a writer, author, ghostwriter, and journalist.

I help people write books, and I write my own.

I have written over a dozen full-length published books, some of which are bestsellers in South Africa. My work has helped my clients win several awards and receive international recognition.

Many of my clients include people you probably know, if you keep up to date with the news. I've written books, autobiographies and articles for thought leaders and influencers of all kinds: politicians, media contributors, entrepreneurs, psychologists, social activists, motivational speakers, and more.

In addition to full-length books, I've published over twenty smaller books and many articles in national news media such as Mail & Guardian, Times Live, the Sunday Times, and others.

I don't just write your book but I also can guide you through the publishing process; help you refine your message so that is is clear, engaging, and inspiring; and give you insight into building your career as an author and speaker.

I love my job. I get to meet interesting people like you. I  like to work hard to make your voice shine and get your message "out there".
