Overview

I love to tell a good story…

I am a ghost-writer.

I’ve ghosted best-selling books and newspaper articles for leading YouTube celebrities, top-tier footballers, politicians and business people.

I’m also the author of dozens of non-fiction books.

These include bestselling biographies of Adele, Justin Bieber and Amy Winehouse; the gift books Running: Cheaper than Therapy and 64 Geeks; and official books/annuals for the London 2012 Olympics, Arsenal FC, Royal Mail, the Dogs Trust and other organisations.

They were published by Bloomsbury, Blink, Virgin, Penguin, Harper Collins, Transworld, Hamlyn, Carlton, Michael O’Mara, Ilex, John Blake, Grange and others.

My books have been sold to 18 countries Brazil, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Croatia, Israel, Mexico, the Netherlands, USA, Slovenia, China and Vietnam.

I’m a journalist with over 22 years experience of writing for dozens of leading newspapers and magazines. I started off as a staff writer on youth/teen magazines including Shoot and 90 Minutes, and on part-work projects, such as Football Magic and PC Friendly. I then wrote for lifestyle and arts magazines, including Attitude, Loaded, Time Out and The Big Issue.

I've also worked as a magazine sub-editor and chief sub-editor.

Nowadays, I write most regularly for the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Independent, Metro and Four Four Two.

As well as traditional journalism, I write sponsored copy for Guardian Labs and Telegraph Sparks. These articles have been for clients including Cadbury, NatWest and ESPN.

I’m fast, reliable and friendly. Say hi!
