who is blake atwood?

A proven, personable, published editor

I’m an editor, author, ghostwriter, and drummer.

By day, I’m the Editorial Director for Denison Forum.

In the past, I’ve worked on Atomic HabitsThe Father EffectOverlap, and dozens more

I’ve written The Gospel According to Breaking Bad and Don’t Fear the Reaper: Why Every Author Needs an Editor. I edited and posthumously published Sins of the Five Fathers by James H. Drury, my late uncle.

I’ve also ghostwritten or cowritten at least a dozen books.

I live in Dallas, Texas, with my wife and son. When not with them, I’m attempting to get better at golf or searching used bookstores for signed books.

I am currently taking on a limited number of freelance clients with a preference for Christian nonfiction authors or general nonfiction authors in need of developmental editing, copyediting, or ghostwriting.

Please contact me below and tell me more about your project.
