She is an elected member of the Society of Authors, as well as a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. Alice is easy to talk to and to work with: she's travelled from London to Beijing for ghosting work, and has assisted over forty authors into print over the past fifteen years.
After having two novels published by Orion Publishing House (London), in both hardback and paperback, she has assisted with innumerable biographies, novels, business books and academic books. London-based though American-born, she has clients on every continent, and a flair for making the unreadable not only readable but also publishable.
TESTIMONIALS to Alice's editing and ghost writing include the following:
'The style is excellent: witty and urbane.' (Indiana University reader's report on book substantively edited by Alice McVeigh)
'Alice is an absolute pleasure. She is quick, intuitive and a complete professional. Her ability to understand and adapt to my "voice" was incredible. In addition, her advice and genuine interest in my project bolstered me and gave me confidence to continue what I was doing. She even drafted a synopsis and covering letter--and even made out a list of agents likely to be receptive to my book, including personal contacts.' (Vanessa La Santa, author and client)
'At last a contract! Alice, you bring me luck!' (email to Alice, from Bella Brover-Lubovsky, on receiving her first book contract)
'Alice puts life into her words; she is a wonderful writer, with sensitivity and imagination. Very professional and a joy to work with: timely and honest and trustworthy. I look forward to a long collaboration.' (Sheila Pryce, Printworks Press)
'Alice McVeigh not only rewrote the book in precisely the style of the period but also organised a researcher for me. Who could have done more?' (Gilbert Gargour, author and client)
'The writing is clear and approachable, at times even lively, which for an academic study of this kind is as unusual as it is refreshing.'(Review of Indiana University Press book substantially edited by Alice McVeigh)
'Alice McVeigh co-wrote my book on the psychology of martial arts. This was a new departure for me, but she took me through every step with ease, constantly encouraging me and always there when I needed her. I cannot recommend Alice too highly!' (Daniel Gonzalez, author and martial arts expert)
'Alice is very attentive to the customer's wishes and needs, and unfailingly patient. She has been a huge help in getting my project organized in a way that serves the ultimate goal, and, in some chapters, I believe that her touch made all the difference.' (Wayne G. Sayles, author and client)
'My memoir was ghosted by Alice McVeigh. Never would I have gotten a publisher without her support and belief in my story. From the structure to the order of the words, there is not a sentence in the book without her art behind it.' (Mahmoud Albayati, author and client)
'I needed a ghost writer for my book about being the first chaplain on the scene after Hurricane Katrina demolished New Orleans. Alice took my notes and turned them into something anyone would be proud of, without changing my style or character. She is extremely easy to work with, with a talent for weaving ideas together. She knows how to ask the right questions in order to dig missing detail out of stored memory . . . Thanks to her, my dream became a reality.' (Mike Taylor, author and client)
'Alice is supportive and quite simply a genius with words. I am more grateful to her than any words (or any fee!) can really express.' (Professor Jehoash Hirshberg, client, author and musicologist)
'Finally I should like to express my thanks to my wife Alice, without whose constant encouragement and tireless search for the right word this book would have been immeasurably the poorer.' (Professor Simon McVeigh, author and musicologist)

Very easy to work with and I very happy with the result. Thank You
Alice is fast,accurate, and full of flair, helped me enormously. I am glad that I found Alice. I would happily recommend Alice to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
Without any doubt Alice's work is of the highest quality and she's lovely to work with.
Absolutely brilliant - I recommend Alice highly. Alice M was one of the few people who showed from her response to my brief that she understood exactly what needed doing on my book. And then she did it! Very quickly, and in a precise and yet inspirational way. In fact, she was a blessing. I can’t recommend her highly enough and I will definitely use her services again.
Thank you so much Alice!
Very good and very informative
Good all round
Will be using again in the future
