How can I help you?

Ghostwriting? Editing? Mentoring? Speaking?


"Mary exceeded all of my expectations of an editor. Her expert advice increased my confidence in the way that my ideas came through the pages. She truly has a gift for taking an abstract idea and crystalizing it into compelling, simple-to-follow language. Mary is not only a tremendous editor, but she is an excellent creative advisor as well. I'm so impressed with her ability to see both the big picture and all the little details simultaneously. Her passion and enthusiasm for writing and for literature in general is infectious, and I'm always excited for my next chance to talk with her. I'm thankful for how receptive Mary was to my needs and for the precision and creativity of her editing. Her quick and clear responses to everything that I put to her made working together a pleasure." —Ken Honda, Japans #1 bestselling personal development guru and author of Happy Money: The Japanese Art of Making Peace with Your Money

“It is a daunting task to write a book to say the least.  When I initially got started on the project, I felt like Lewis and Clark taking my first steps into the forest to discover America. I had no idea where to go or what to do: All I had was what I thought was a good story that people needed to hear.  I slowly amassed thousands of words on paper of so-called wisdom that had no shape or direction whatsoever.  And then came Mary Curran Hackett.  Mary has the uncanny ability to help you see what you are truly capable of.  Her guidance is crystal clear.  Her creativity makes your work even better, and she delivers amazing results - on time and on point.  It’s really quite simple: There would be no book for me, if not for her expertise, her skill, and her belief in my project.  If you are thinking about embarking on this challenging but rewarding journey, my advice is - take Mary with you.”Ken Rusk, author of Blue Collar Cool

“I’m incredibly impressed by the responsiveness and professionalism of my ghostwriter, Mary. Writing this book would simply not be possible without their help, and now my message and business lessons have been transformed into a beautifully written manuscript that I’m proud to call my own. Every step of the process has been a pleasure, from the group book-planning and strategy sessions (conducted onsite, in the comfort of my home in Florida), through writing the book and pitching it to agents and publishers. Thank you!”—Tom Murry, 17-year CEO of Calvin Klein, is one of the most successful businessmen in the fashion industry. Known for his exemplary leadership style and the ability to meld taste and creativity with business acumen, Murry was responsible for the greatest growth period in Calvin Klein’s history, transforming the company’s global retail value from $2.8-billion to $8-billion
