Legal Writer | Author | Ghostwriter

A professional writer for any legal topic and genre. I pride myself on impeccable research and translating complex legal documents/topics into easy to digest material. In addition to being a sought after Ghostwriter for a wide variety of clients and projects, I write intriguing narrative nonfiction of my own. The publication of my first nonfiction book "Murder In Baker Company: How Four American Soldiers Killed One of Their Own" received positive reviews by many media outlets, including but not limited to "Publisher's Weekly," "The Washington Post" and "In These Times." The story was also the subject of the fictional movie "In the Valley of Elah" starring Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron. The book version is regularly used in studies of the Iraq war and as source material for other writers, such as the late best-selling author Michael Palmer whose novel "Political Suicide" graciously acknowledged my assistance during his research. Throughout my 15 year career, I've developed a keen understanding of current publishing trends (both print and multi-media) and the marketing techniques necessary for a project to reach its goals.


"...a consummate professional, gifted writer, compassionate soul, and an altogether outstanding human being! Over the past several years, we collaborated on some very sensitive national security issues, and, without fail, she demonstrated impeccable judgement, unfailing integrity, and balanced composure as we delved into some difficult and controversial issues. Her writing, for which she is renowned, is powerful, persuasive, and engaging." ~ Attorney Stuart W. Bowen, Jr., Principal at Bowen Partners

"Cilla is a dedicated researcher and outstanding advocate for military families who are trying to navigate their way through health care and suicide issues. Highly recommended as a source of information for those fighting the system for recognition of their problems." ~ T. Christian Miller, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist/Senior Reporter, at ProPublica

"Cilla McCain is a talented writer. But what truly distinguishes Cilla from other writers or journalists is her ability to research and track down facts and people. She displays both passion and a great deal of common sense - a great combination which produces results in her endeavors. I trust Cilla completely, having seen her handle many sensitive and confidential matters with great tact and discretion. I look forward to working with her again or at least reading anything she puts on paper." ~ Colby Vokey, Attorney at Law
