'Going Rogue'

Meet Sarah Palin's Ghostwriter

But did she really nail Palin? Lynn Vincent took leave from her post at the Christian publication World Magazine, where she'd worked for a decade, to be ghostwriter for Sarah Palin's book, Going Rogue: An American Life, due out in November. But Vincent can't talk about it—she signed a non-disclosure agreement. Vincent retired from the Navy as an air traffic controller in 1991 and settled in San Deigo. Since then, she has written books about a Christian pop singer, a former terrorist, and an Army general, but her most successful work was an inspirational book about a rich art dealer who befriended a homeless man. Same Kind of Different as Me sold more than half a million copies and spent 75 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list—prompting Mark Clayman, executive producer of the sappy American Dream-themed The Pursuit of Happyness—to pick up the movie rights.
