fleshwriter
n. The person for whom a ghostwriter writes a book.

Example Citation:
"I fell into ghostwriting in 1989, during a slump in my journalism career. Established but neither flush nor famous, I was delighted to get this relatively well-paid work helping business stars write books. I interviewed my "fleshwriters" (as we ghosts call them), drafted early versions, and coached them through revisions."
