“Hardboiled meets cozy mystery? Let’s call it soft boiled!! Loads of laughs, action, and genuine 1960s England. Fabulous”

5-star reviewer

Peter Bartram brings years of experience as a journalist to his Headline Hero 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 including five ghost-written for other authors.

Peter launched his Headline Hero series in 2015 with Headline Murder. As of Summer 2023, there are 15 books in the series with thousands of 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 2,500 five-star reviews at the last count.

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.
