I am an investment advisor. I have begun writing an investing book for
the public, but due to time constraints, (and lack of discipline!) I
would prefer to have professional help. The ideal candidate would be
someone who has written financial works (books, hopefully) for the
public, but who won't mind the fact that his or her name will NOT be
on the cover of this book. In other words, a ghost writer.

Are you looking for a recommendation of one or more writers, or
instructions on how to find one?

A recommendation would, of course, be great, but I understand that
that would probably be well beyond the scope of what you normally do.
Therefore, a good source for pro financial writers is what I am
looking for. Even better, some efficient way to evaluate the
candidates, as opposed to sifting through mere listings.

website and newsletter, which is circulated to a high number of
professional writers. Place a notice here, and writers will contact
you with their qualifications. Just write a letter to the editor of
Writer's Weekly (Angela Hoy); be sure to include information about
