Hi, thanks for checking out my website. My name is Simon Nott and my blurb says I'm a freelance publicist, horseracing and music writer.
In recent years I have been best known in the horseracing industry as the person behind the Star Sports #BettingPeople series of interviews the brainchild of Star Sports' owner Ben Keith, a body of work I'm very proud of. I'm always open to freelance offers in the media. As well as the interviews that I've conducted, from professional punters to Royalty, I'm a writer, previously published in The Racing Post Weekender, Racing Ahead and The Independent. I self-published my book 'Skint Mob' which has sold well since it was published in 2013 and nominated for 'BT Sports Book Of The Year 2014. I'm currently working on a music based book with the working title 'It All Started With Gary Glitter' which I'm guessing I'll have to rethink.
I've recently tackled some live broadcasting, live streaming betting news from point to points and appeared as a last-minute guest on Luck On Sunday. That's something I'd like to further, be it TV, radio or podcasts.
Some people may consider that horseracing and music are strange bedfellows, but not me. I've written for music magazines and fanzines since the 1990s. I started freelance work for Big Cheese Magazine in 2002 and continue to do so for sister publication Vive Le Rock and Rock N Roll specialist title UK Rock N Roll. I've also written sleeve notes for various labels, something I'm always keen to do. I also handle advertising for UK Rock N Roll and Blocks magazine. That's me, I'm versatile and ready for new challenges. If you think I can do anything for you please get in touch.
