Welcome to the website of Simon Petherick. I am a writer and ghostwriter of non-fiction and fiction titles. My new book, Jack and Barry, a novella which imagines a brief friendship between Jack Kerouac and Barry Goldwater in Arizona in 1964, is out in the UK and USA in June 2023.

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 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.

Thank you for visiting this site. Do please browse the various pages, contact me via the Contact page or say hello via Twitter.

All the best, 

Simon Petherick
