Are you an aspiring writer? I invite you to take a look at my free online guide, Writing Science Fiction and Fantasy, with an emphasis on the fundamentals of storytelling. The course is completely free for anyone to use, no signup, registration, or any other damn thing between you and the content. Just dive into it, browse it, try the exercises, make whatever you can of it.

Why am I offering this for free? Well, I like to help out where I can. It grew out of an educational TV show I once hosted, and the content from that was turned into a CD-ROM course. (Remember CD-ROM courses?) When that had run its course, I decided to put it up for free.

It was originally created for young writers. But the feedback I get suggests that adults are using it more than kids are, and getting helpful guidance from it. It’s intended for new writers of any age, who are struggling to find their footing in the exciting and often frustrating world of writing.

If that’s you, check it out at!

Do you find it helpful? You can say thanks by buying a couple of my books, one for yourself and one for a friend.
