Welcome to the website of Simon Petherick. I am a writer and ghostwriter of non-fiction and fiction titles. My latest book, Jack and Barry, a novella which imagines a brief friendship between Jack Kerouac and Barry Goldwater in Arizona in 1964, was published in the UK and USA in June 2023. A new print edition of my first novel, The Last Good Man, will be published in the UK and USA by Leapfrog Press in April 2024.

I have ghostwritten many non-fiction and fiction titles for clients and publishers, ranging from biography to business, fiction to political analysis. Please click here for further information. I am also a member of The Ghostwriters Agency.

I have written several film screenplays and I write occasional journalism for newspapers such as The Guardian and magazines such as the Idler and the Oldie.
