Hello, everyone! 

The question is: is there anyone who would buy a manuscript to put under their own name? As I mentioned, this is a weird question. My reason for asking, and perhaps this will clarify things, is that I don't want recognition for my writings but I also think people would like to read them. I've written two books and just never published. I would like to be a ghostwriter but it seems that I cannot find a good place to start with that. Therefore, here I am asking my question. Hopefully this makes sense. 


Many thanks, 

Danielle Y.

I think you'll find the answer is no.


Use a pen name.

I went the pen name route for similar reasons. I didn't want the recognition. Even the idea of it stresses me out. But, you can publish under whatever name you'd like. For example, on CreateSpace, it asks what the author's name as it will appear on the book. You can publish five books under five different author names if you'd like.
