Crime mysteries

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.
