In short

  • Part time writer hoping to publish that elusive first book. Full time dad and corporate training manager.

    Being in training for 16 years or so I tell things the way I see them. I don't hold back. I give it as I would expect to get it. If you want honest feedback I would love to help out. But be careful what you ask for. In the end though - it is your story, you decide what advice to take and what to trash.

    And if you don't have enough to read, I keep a blog about my writing experiences. Feel free to take a look and comment....

    "If writing is a passion then editing is an obsession and it is only through obsessive editing that good writing can be achieved."   Kirk von der Heydt / 2010
