About Chrissi

Chrissi Maria

I prefer to be in the wings, so ghostwriting is the perfect way to channel my daily word count into existence. I’m a passionate teller of people’s stories – be it a personal memoir, a legacy or life book, or corporate history – and it would be a privilege to tell yours.

I’m intentional about making the written word understandable and accessible, and “uncomplicated” defines my approach.

How I got here

After spending many years at the university of life gaining experience in marketing, PR and brand management, I decided to focus on things I love most: brands and writing. In 2007 Gerbera Brand Management was born.

I have been kept busy for most of the past fourteen years by virtue of word-of-mouth recommendations. I’m incredibly grateful for all the opportunities, as well as the loyalty my clients have shown me – it is a testimonial I strive to continue deserving.
