Adrian Besley – Ghostwriter

Author of over 25 titles, including BTS, Monty Python and Billie Eilish and ghostwriter for Love Island celeb and UK Cycling nutritionist


Originally a copywriter, I have been a published author for 20 years now having worked with leading publishers such as HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster and Michael O'Mara. I have a proverbial string of over 25 titles to my name (although not always in my name!). They have generally been in the fields of popular culture, including bestselling books on BTS (an unofficial biography), Monty Python (official!) and YouTube as well as a range of sport and music titles. I have also dabbled in humour with titles such as the parodic Doctor Fatkins' Resolutionary Diet, You Don't Know... Jack Schitt (a spoof detective novel) and The Retrosexual Manual - How to be a Real Man (with material used for a double-paged spread in national newspapers).

I've recently ghostwritten for Michelin-Star chef turned cycling nutritionist Alan Murchison in two books that both broke the top 100 on Amazon and, wrote a biography/ life transformation tips (yes, I know!) book for Love Island celebrity Anton Danyluk, due to be published in August 2021.

I love researching and writing fun and interesting stories. I'm enthusiastic and full of ideas (admittedly sometimes varying in quality) and, as far as I know, I'm a dream to work with - well that's what they've always told me!
