I just started a portfolio for freelance writing and I've notice a lot of people asking for ghostwriters. An actual writer gets to do all the work for small pay and then sign away the book to a person who can put a face or name to it (whether they have or have no writing talent). It kind of sounds like cheating to me. What are your thoughts on this?

Shia LaBeouf can! No wait. Ohhhh.... lol
I had that experience as well! If you are going to hire a writer I would hope they had a similar voice. I sometimes wonder about Stephen King's latter books. Hmmm...
This is the one instance where I agree. You can't take over another author's novel style and get away with it, but in these instances its usually the publisher dictating terms in an attempt to wheedle more profit from and established name.
Interesting, Dennis - but if you are the writer and sell all rights so someone else can potentially profit exponentially - are you being recognized or used? (fyi - I'm not against ghostwriting I'm curious what everyone else thinks about it)
