It troubles my mind that sapphires and rubies are different colors of the same gem. "Pink sapphires" could just as well be called pink rubies---and why aren't they? It makes more sense. We don't call the light blue stones "blue rubies."
So, when you have people who put out autobiographies when you're PRETTY SURE they're personally unable to successfully clack two words together, but then there's no "as told to" or other credit---I guess this means there is such a thing as a totally on purpose uncredited writer. In fact (*two neurons clacking together*), I guess that's what "ghostwriter" MEANS. That seems like it might be kind of...unsatisfying, as jobs go.
It shouldn't surprise me that such a job exists: manuals don't usually have authors on them, and yet we know someone wrote them. Advertising copy doesn't have an author's name on it, either. But...in those cases, we know someone wrote it, but we don't know WHO. In the case of a celebrity autobiographer, we know someone wrote it, and the celebrity takes the credit---and no doubt goes around claiming to be a published author.
