From a New York Times review of The Catch and the Feast, ghosted by Dick Harrison. 

Dick Harrison is a lifelong writer, copywriter, ghostwriter, scriptwriter and just about every other kind of wordsmith he could be with twenty-six keys and two fast-flying fingers.

He began writing professionally when he was fourteen and still hasn’t stopped more than a half century later.

His ghostwritten books have earned critical acclaim and he’s been honored with hundreds of creative awards.

Dick has been a copywriter and creative director at advertising agencies including McCann-Erickson, BBDO and Saatchi & Saatchi (which was called Compton at the time).

As a freelancer he has written shows for PBS and The Discovery Channel; articles for magazines including Town and Country, Cosmopolitan, Field and Stream and many more; plus blogs, videos, newspaper and magazine ads, TV and radio commercials, instructional materials, websites, catalogs, speeches, direct mail, annual reports and more.

Dick has lectured at universities from California to Puerto Rico, presented seminars on writing and creative technique and taught professional communications certification courses. 

His writing has reached three-quarters of a billion people in many different media and has been translated into half a dozen languages.

Two Fast Fingers & 26 Keys is the first book he’s written with his own name on the cover.
