Business award for Beerwah ghostwriter

THERE is a native American proverb that says: “Those who tell stories rule the world”. It is something Beerwah-based ghostwriter Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane has felt in her soul for as long as she can remember.

On September 23, Roxanne was awarded the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Micro Small Business Woman of the Year at a gala night at The Events Centre Caloundra.

After sharing people’s stories both in print and online as a journalist since 2007, Roxanne moved into ghostwriting non-fiction books in 2018 and has been running her business full-time since the end of 2019.

“For the past 14 years as a journalist, I have helped to tell stories that have shocked, educated, inspired, uplifted and cautioned as well as passed on the wisdom of the person I am working with,” Roxanne said.

“Now, as a businesswoman, ghostwriter and writing mentor, I can take that to a whole new level and help aspiring authors to connect with themselves, their stories and their readers in a powerful way that transforms everyone involved.

“I encourage you all to stand up and own your story – warts and all – because the world right now, more than ever, needs authentic storytellers just like you to be bold, brave and be the change you want to see,” Roxanne said.
