Writers & Collaborators

Janis represents a wide range of veteran writers who specialize in freelance editing, ghostwriting and collaborating with expert authors to develop book concepts in the area of self improvement, narative nonfiction, inspiration, psychology, the environment, diet and health.  Writers are available to collaborate with authors represented by other agencies as well as our own, such as:

A special tribute to the extraordinarily gifted RACHEL KRANZ who died in late August, 2017. Her dedication, integrity and just plain brilliance made it possible for many of these books to come to life. As a ghostwriter, novelist and extraordinary being she will long be remembered. Her fingerprints are everywhere on my list and I could not have done many of them without her magic.

Editor and writer best known for her work in health and alternative medicine, Colleen Kapklein collaborates with expert authors such as osteopathic physician George Kessler (THE BONE DENSITY DIET/ Ballantine) and NO MORE KNEE PAIN/ Berkley); orthomolecular psychiatrist Michael Lesser, M.D, (THE BRAIN CHEMISTRY DIET/ Putnam); Stephen Lanzalotta (THE DIET CODE/Warner Books, represented by Marly Rusoff) and Rick Kirschner (HOW TO CLICK WITH PEOPLE/Hyperion). As an editor at Warner Books for eight years, Colleen Kapklein acquired and edited dozens of books, both fiction and non-fiction, but specialized in health and alternative health titles, including What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause by John Lee, M.D., which sold half a million copies in its first two years.

Non-fiction collaborator, editor and ghostwriter, Rachel Kranz has worked with numerous best-selling authors and leaders in functional medicine, including Frank Lipman, Amy Myers, Peter D’Adamo, JJ Virgin, and Ann Louise Gittleman. She is best known for her ability to integrate medical, scientific and spiritual concepts as well as her fast turnaround time from concept to completed manuscript.  Her book credits cover a wide range of topics from diet and health to psychology and cultural awareness, most notably: DIRTY GENES by Dr Ben Lynch (Harper One); 10 REASONS YOU GET OLD AND FAT—AND WHY YOU DON’T HAVE TO by Frank Lipman, M.D. (Hay House, represented by Stephanie Tade); THE APPETITE SOLUTION by Joseph Colella, M.D. (HarperCollins); THE AUTOIMMUNE SOLUTION and THE THYROID SOLUTION by Amy Myers, M.D (HarperOne and Little Brown respectively, represented by Stephanie Tade);  THE MICROBIOME DIET and THE WHOLE BRAIN by Raphael Kellman, M.D. (DaCapo); WHOLE DETOX by Deanna Minich (HarperCollins, represented by Stephany Tade); THE METABOLISM PLAN by Lyn-Genet Recitas (Hachette, represented by Stacey Glick); ADVENTURES IN WORLD PEACE by John Hunter (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, represented by Cynthia Cannell) and THE UNHEALTHY TRUTH by Robyn O’Brien with Rachel Kranz.(Broadway, represented by Carrie Cook Platt).

Fiction and non-fiction author, essayist and ghostwriter, Lynn Lauber’s essays and short stories have appeared in the New York Times and in anthologies. She collaborates with authors, especially in the realm of health, healing and inspirational narrative, including Peter Rabins, M.D. (GETTING OLD WITHOUT GETTING ANXIOUS/Avery Books), renowned cardiologist Mimi Guarneri, M.D. (THE HEART SPEAKS/Fireside), Roxanne Black, Founder and Executive Director of the Friends’ Health Connection (UNEXPECTED BLESSINGS/Avery, represented by Stephanie Tade), autism advocates Lynn and Randy Gaston (THREE TIMES THE LOVE, Avery), Chris Downie, Founder and CEO of SparkPeople.com (THE SPARK, Hay House, represented by Stephanie Tade) and Dr. Jared Skowron (100 NATURAL REMEDIES FOR YOUR CHILD, Rodale). She is co-author of 4 digital novels in the TALES OF EVERYDAY MAGIC series (Hay House)

Toni Robino is is a writer, editorial coach, and collaborator on more than a dozen non-fiction books by expert authors, most notably in the area of psychology, science, self-help, and inspiration, including WINNING AFTER LOSING by Stacey Halprin (Warner); THE MALE BRAIN by Louann Brizendine, M.D. (Doubleday, represented by Lisa Queen), CLEAN, GREEN AND LEAN by Dr. Walter Crinnion (Wiley) and 100 HEARTBEATS by Jeff Corwin (Rodale, represented by Stephanie Tade).
