By the age of ten, John H Bingham knew he wanted to be a writer. Nevertheless, unable to earn an adequate living as a writer, John did other things to help pay the bills. Door to door sales and surveys in college led to consulting entrepreneurs with their startups. That led to a decade of building up telecommunication capacities for service, survey and sales divisions of banks, insurance and wireless communication companies.
In the late 90’s, John began working with a dental laser company still in its infancy. After a serious learning curve, over the next ten years John taught surgical techniques, using lasers for both oral and general procedures.
All along the way, always writing.
Finally, an opportunity to write a book for someone presented itself. The first client led to a second, a second led to a third and so on. Now, as a Guild Certified Ghostwriter, his number of books has now surpassed the century mark, averaging two-hundred and thirty pages per book. For more than a decade, John continues to use his extensive and widely arrayed personal experience to both hear and understand what clients want to convey in their books.
“Some think I ‘took the long way around the barn’ to become a writer, and maybe they’re right,” says John. “However, as a ghostwriter, understanding what a client wants to say and how they want to say it, as I download their heads and gather their information is critically important. It’s my own varied and extensive experience that helps me to know what questions to ask, how to ask them and in what order to ask them so as to reveal the client’s message to readers rather than creating an unintended, alternative message.”
John’s spare time is all about family and travel. He and his wife are the parents of six children and the grandparents of four. Both John and his wife have traveled and lived abroad. Now, as empty nesters, they’ll being doing more of it.
