Chris Newton worked as a newspaper and radio journalist and went on to become a director of a leading PR consultancy before turning to writing and publishing. His lifelong passion for the written word soon led to a specialisation in writing and editing books. A Life On The Edge, Chris’ biography of the celebrated angling and wildlife broadcaster and writer Hugh Falkus, was widely acclaimed by the national press and described by one reviewer as having ‘a good claim to be the finest biography of an angler anyone has ever written’.
Chris now applies his skill at writing and storytelling to editing and ghostwriting books on a freelance basis, working closely with Memoirs Books of Cirencester, a highly-regarded self-publishing house. He is adept at matching his writing style to the subject and the wishes of the author and at editing manuscripts of all kinds to produce polished, highly readable prose.
'My thanks to Chris for his patient unravelling of a wealth of information to produce a far more coherent account than I could have managed... he has woven the facts into a delightful tapestry.' - Dr Gordon Sharp, Going For A Spin (Memoirs Publishing)
‘Newton writes with a precision and humour that beguiles… he has a lightness of touch; there is a hint of Bill Bryson’s style, but leavened rather than overburdened with wit… an education and a delight’. - Trout & Salmon magazine on The Trout’s Tale, the Fish that Conquered an Empire.
