Peter Bartram brings years of experience as a journalist to his Crampton of the Chronicle crime series – which features crime reporter Colin Crampton in 1960s Brighton.

Peter has done most things in journalism from door-stepping for quotes to writing serious editorials. He’s interviewed cabinet ministers and crooks – at least the crooks usually answer the questions, he says.

He’s pursued stories in locations as diverse as 700 feet down a coal mine and a courtier’s chambers at Buckingham Palace. (The former is easier to get into but at least you don’t have to wear a hat with a lamp on it in the latter.)

Peter wrote 21 non-fiction books, including five ghost-written, in areas such as biography, current affairs and how-to titles, before turning to crime – and penning Headline Murder, the first novel in the Crampton series. As an appetiser for the main course, there is a selection of Crampton of the Chronicle short stories at www.colincrampton.com. Peter is a member of the Society of Authors and the Crime Writers’ Association.

Non-Fiction

“Mr Bartram’s advice is sensible and practical. For instance, he pours scorn on the mealy-mouthed euphemisms and evasive polysyllables that come out of so many companies… his guidance away from the self-important to the straightforward should be read by everyone who writes anything .” – Daily Telegraph.

Ghostwriting

Peter Bartram describes how to use a ghostwriter to turn your book idea from a dream into reality. It has been said that everybody has a book inside them. Trouble is, for most people, it stays inside. They don’t have the time or, sometimes, the skills to write it down on paper in a form that publishers will want to publish. That’s where ghostwriters come in. Many of the memoirs of famous – and not so famous – people that you read have been drafted by ghostwriters.

If you're looking to settle down for some light entertainment this weekend, I can strongly recommend listening to Matt Jamie read The Morning, Noon & Night trilogy. Matt, an actor who's had parts in top TV shows such as Coronation Street and Emmerdale, makes a great job of voicing the different characters. You can hear a free excerpt from the first book - Murder in the Morning Edition - by following the link below.
