Does Telling a Story Make You an Author? Or Writing It? You Tell Me.

As a self-published author, I have my own particular thoughts on publishing a book with my name/pen-name on it. But, how do you guys feel about ghost writers? These are the books by NAME with NAME. They are told by one person, and written by another, called the ghostwriter.

Can you fairly call someone who told the story, but didn’t write it, an author? From a writer/author standpoint, what are your thoughts? Please comment and share if you’d like, I’m interested in your thoughts.

A good example is “Mirror Mirror,” by Cara Delevingne (Rowan Coleman) and “Raw” by Pamela Anderson (Emma Dunlavey).
