Interview with senior ghostwriter, Christopher Lomas

Christopher began his professional writing career as Editorial Consultant on the trade magazine, Drain Trader, featured as the guest publication in the very first series of Have I Got News For You.  

As well as writing about pitch fibre pipes, effluent treatment, and the many bubbling issues of the sewage and wastewater industry, he was called upon to write a number of company profiles for some of the industry’s big players. He put these skills to good use when he went freelance as a copywriter. Although he started out writing web copy, company profiles and product copy, he was soon asked to compile speeches, longer-form pieces of writing, and then full-blown manuscripts.  

Christopher was hired to set up and run the editorial department of a new publishing house in Nottinghamshire in 2016. He worked with many first-time authors, helping them tell their mental health survival stories. Looking to diversify his bibliography, he went back into freelance mode as a professional ghostwriter in 2019 and established Lomas Editorial. He has now ghosted more than 40 books for his clients.  

Christopher lives in Southwell, Nottinghamshire.
