Life as a Sweet Valley High Ghostwriter

Boston College English professor Amy Boesky has a fascinating essay in The Kenyon Review about her time as a ghostwriter for the popular Sweet Valley High series. For six years while she was a Harvard graduate student, Ms. Boesky – under the pseudonym “Kate William” – turned the free-verse “story plots” Francine Pascal created into “chapter outlines” that helped further the adventures of the Wakefield twins of Sweet Valley High. You can find an interview with Ms. Boesky here.
