Conversation with a ghost

I had a weird experience the other day. I’m perfectly comfortable talking with people and recording our chats with a view to writing books for them—that’s my job. But, I was taken right out of my comfort zone when Ian Kath, interviewer extraordinaire, decided that he’d like to create a podcast episode about ghostwriting.

Ian Kath, a genuine and sincere man

For once I’d be on the other end of the microphone and I wasn’t really sure if I liked that idea. However, after only a few minutes, I warmed to Ian’s genuine and sincere personality and, realising I would be in safe hands, decided to give it a go.

Ian, the mastermind behind two fascinating podcast websites— and—has decided to follow his passion and “create a space in my life for change, a place to meet new and interesting people and a place to create a way for some others to see how others live and develop a little more empathy for others so that we will realise that fundamentally we are all the same and want similar things as each other and that there is more that connects us than separates us.”

I had no idea where Ian was going to go with this interview. There was no preparation at all. We just sat down and had a great conversation. And here it is:

  1. I really enjoyed listing to the part about how you wrote your first book. I’m sure that anyone contemplating writing a book would benefit from hearing the method that you followed. It really is inspirational. Congrats on your success and following your dream.

    1. Thanks for the great feedback, Belinda. I’ve got to quite like the podcast format although it’s quite a different matter being on the pointy end of the microphone instead of asking the questions. The editing process is in other hands entirely – eek!
