Peter Bartram brings years of experience as a journalist to his Crampton of the Chronicle crime mysteries. Peter began his career during a “gap year” between school and university when he worked as a reporter for a local newspaper. After graduating from the London School of Economics, Peter resumed his life as a journalist working for newspapers and magazines in London.
Peter has done most things in journalism – from door-stepping for quotes to writing serious editorials. He’s covered stories in locations as different as 700-feet down a coal mine and Buckingham Palace. He’s edited newspapers and magazines and written 20 non-fiction books. As a ghost-writer of non-fiction, his clients have included a member of parliament, an Arab businessman, and an IT entrepreneur.
Peter launched his Crampton series in 2015 with Headline Murder. As of November 2021, there are 14 books in the series with well over 130,000 readers around the world. Crime book reviewers have variously praised the humorous series as “fast paced”, “superbly crafted”, “a breath of fresh air”, and “a romp of a read”. Ordinary readers had awarded the books more than 1,400 five-star reviews at the last count.
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.
“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.
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.
