After spending several years in a corporate setting, Yvonne Perry decided to make a brave move and start her own
freelance writing company. Leaving her full-time position as an administrative assistant in the sales and marketing
division of a Fortune 500 company, she started her new career in 2003 with very little business experience. Today,
she is the owner of Writers in the Sky Creative Writing Services where she serves as a freelance ghostwriter and editor for individuals and businesses.
By aligning herself and her company with other
writers and experts in the field, Perry has networked her company to the top as a premier ghostwriter and editor in Nashville, Tennessee.
She and her team stay busy on client projects such as writing media releases, ghostwriting and editing books, article writing, creating ad copy,
and producing business documents. The team provides writing and editing services to individuals while offering a logical way for large
corporations to outsource their writing needs. Thanks to the Internet, the company’s reputation has reached international status.
With her wide variety of writing experience that includes impressive résumés, personal and professional bios, high-quality press
releases and articles, as well as case studies, proposals and marketing pieces, Yvonne is ready to work with you on your next project.
Under her own name, Perry has authored the following books:
Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom from the Thoughts,Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You—a guidebook for empathic people who have
been unknowingly carrying energetic burdens that belong to someone else (2011).
Her humorous book, titled
Email Episodes ~ A Hilariously Honest Look at Life, is about a woman experiencing an identity crisis as she
faces divorce and approaches mid-life with teenagers who are raising reptiles in the basement
Perry has authored twelve children’s
stories known as
The Sid Series ~ A Collection of Holistic Stories for Children. These stories build self-esteem and
empower young ones to follow their inner guidance and overcome fear. Inspired by her grandson, these stories offer
valuable messages that support the whole child—body, soul and spirit—and teach environmental responsibility
In April 2005, Yvonne released
More Than Meets the Eye: True Stories about Death, Dying and Afterlife,
a book that address topics that many people are not comfortable talking about such as suicide, the near-death experience, end of life
decisions, and euthanasia. The book is designed to help people release their fear of death, learn to communicate with those on the
other side, and to comfort someone who is grieving the loss of a loved one.
Right to Recover Winning the Political and Religious Wars over Stem Cell Research in America,
is a well-researched, educational book that addresses all types of stem cell research and challenges political and religious opinions regarding blastocystic
(embryonic) stem cell biology. The book was published by Nightengale Press in October 2007.
Yvonne's e-book, Book Marketing in the Digital Age,
Online Promotion Make Easy, was released as an e-book to help authors
who need assistance with online book promotion. All Yvonne’s books are available at

marketing experts. Each Friday a new show is uploaded to iTunes.com and is also available as audio
