The Ghost Writes Back
Did anyone else love the Sweet Valley High books growing up? They were the staple of my local library's tiny YA section, and I DEVOURED them. I have no idea how many I read, but it was a lot. So I was quite excited to see an essay entitled "The Ghost Writes Back" by one of the principle ghostwriters of the series, Amy Boesky. She reflects on why she started ghostwriting for the series, why she continued for so long, and what made her stop. It's fascinating stuff and extremely well-written too.
