Service Description

Marilyn Kentz is a 5-time published author and television personality. Her books include The Motherload (HarperCollins), Not Your Mother’s Midlife: A Ten Step Guide to Fearless Aging (Andrews McMeel) and Fearless Women: Midlife Portraits (Stewart, Tabori, Chang). She was nominated for a Cable Ace Award for best comedy writing and performing for her Showtime Comedy Special, “My Kid Beat Up Your Honor Student”. In the 90s she and next-door-neighbor, Caryl Kristensen, parlayed their standup comedy act into the NBC sitcom, “The Mommies”. She then co-hosted and was a producer on the ABC talk show Caryl & Marilyn: Real Friends. Today she is a media coach with Media-Savvy in Los Angeles, provides both humorous and inspirational keynote, facilitates writer’s support groups and women’s support groups, is a parent educator and a ghostwriter.

As a ghostwriter, I create a team type atmosphere between the author and myself. I have been published several times and do not need my name on the cover of the book, as in “with Marilyn Kentz”. I believe the author should take credit from his/her public. I work hard for my authors and we usually end up friends. I provide the following:
Help the author flesh out ideas and character story lines, rework any confusing sections, clean up any dead wood and edit for grammar and punctuation while keeping the original story line, integrity and author’s vision. This a very stimulating and fun job for me.
