I'm not an independent contractor, but my company ghostwrites for
our main client often. It's been our experience that journal
editors are used to working with ghostwriters, and they welcome
correspondence with the actual author. (They'll probably gladly
send you their style guide if you ask.) Getting that letter might
not be so hard after all.
