About Susan Golant

Susan G photoI have been writing nonfiction books alone and with others since 1982 and have more than 40 books to my credit. I am a book collaborator, co-author, book doctor, ghostwriter, editor, and/or writing coach. My specialties: psychology, health and medical breakthroughs, diet, women’s advancement, business, spirituality, and parenting. Most are self-help books written with an eye toward improving society.

My love of writing has spawned a career rich in experience and learning including, most recently, The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up: A Breakthrough Medical Plan to Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease(Center Street, 2014) with Steven Masley, MD; Within Our Reach:  Ending the Mental Health Crisis, my third book collaboration with former First Lady Rosalynn Carter; the award-winning Alzheimer’s Project: Momentum in Science, based on the acclaimed HBO documentary series; and Ten Years Younger, a diet, exercise, and lifestyle book. I help new and seasoned authors develop book proposals and sell their books. Publishers and agents call me to salvage books that are in trouble. I am a coach and cheerleader for others’ careers. I have taught at UCLA’s Writers’ Program for nearly 20 years and have become what some partners call a literary midwife – helping authors give birth to their books.
