'Jan is an exceptional editor and creative consultant. I have worked with him on several projects and his input has been beneficial in the success of my writing career with Random House. Jan was instrumental in teaching me how to be a more dramatic and observant writer, which in turn has led to three international bestsellers. Working with Jan will accelerate your learning, make your writing significantly better, and he is great to work with.'

What I do
I'm creative, what can I tell you?
I've been doing this a long time. I've been drawing since I could hold a crayon and writing for decades too. In that time I've not only had to develop my skills but also my knowledge of a lot of creative industries, because in the pursuit of my own goals I soon discovered that being creative in itself is no use unless you can produce material that people like and get it to the people who can help you make money out of it.
So that's what I do. I create commercial product and help others make their creative product commercial. Sometimes that starts with a manuscript assessment. Sometimes it evolves into mentoring, acting as an agent, co-writer, ghost-writer or illustrator.
It's very exciting. I've been able to help such wonderful creative folk as Anthony O'Neill, Christopher Ride, Nansi Kunze, William Tevelein, Will Schaefer and Martin Chimes establish their careers. I've also been lucky enough to forge firm friendships and work with many of Australia's top creative people like Christopher Sequeira, Jason Franks and Bruce Mutard.
So, if you want help with your creative project, send me an email or give me a call. Please check out the website first, though, so you have a good idea of what I do and how I may be able to help you.
