More than 25 years of writers helping writers

Dean Koontz

Creativity is as much an unconscious process, and many of the techniques and approaches I came up with were not obvious to me until I had been using them a while.

Each reader needs to bring his or her own mind and heart to the text.

I don't write a quick draft and then revise; instead, I work slowly page by page, revising and polishing.

I love the possibilities of language, the gracefulness and suppleness of English, so while storytelling is-make no mistake-hard work, it is also a form of play.

Writing a novel is like making love, but it's also like having a tooth pulled. Pleasure and pain. Sometimes it's like making love while having a tooth pulled.
