Prince Harry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning power-ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer

The author ghostwriting Prince Harry‘s new book is J.R. Moehringer, a Pulitzer-winning journalist and writer who previously worked with Andre Agassi and the co-founder of Nike on their own money-spinning memoirs.  

Harry has been working on the book for the last year and a first draft is due by October.  Penguin Random House has purchased the rights, Page Six reports. 

It’s unclear how much exactly he’s being paid for it but Penguin Random House previously paid the Obamas $65million for their dual deal. 

Experts tell DailyMail.com that Harry will have been given ‘at least’ a $20million advance for his memoir, with millions more to be made in sales. 

It’s unclear if Meghan has plans for her own memoir.

Before ghost-writing, Moehringer worked as a reporter for The New York Times and L.A. Times.  

He describes his ‘big break’ as an article in 1997 for the Times about the 1950s boxer Bob ‘Bombardier’ Satterfield, who he’d discovered was sleeping on benches in L.A.

Moehringer with Samuel L. Jackson and producer Bradley Fischer. In 1998, Moehringer wrote an article for The LA Times about the 1950s boxing legend Bob Bombardier Satterfield, who he’d discovered was sleeping on park benches. The article was turned into a movie starring Jackson titled Resurrecting The Champ

The article he wrote – Resurrecting The Champ – became a movie later starring Samuel L. Jackson.

Moehringer’s own memoir, The Tender Bar, told the story of his New York upbringing and how he spent it in a bar. 

He was a finalist for the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing for his story on Satterfield and he was awarded the prize for his story on Gee’s Bend, a river town in Alabama. 

The story also appeared in The Los Angeles Times.
