Kurt’s love of literature began with Marvel’s Spider-Man comic books as a child and has grown with and within him into an affectionate affair with many of the Greats of Classic Literature, as well as with many of the Greats, both Known and Unknown, of Genre Fiction. His penchant for editing and proofing began as a child with the errors he would find on the backs of cereal boxes he would read while eating his breakfast. To this day, his uncanny knack for finding typos remains (except in his own writing, of course, where they forever elude him most effectively).

Kurt couples his lifelong love for reading, writing, and editing with an undergraduate degree in English and a graduate degree in Human Relations to offer the following Manuscript Consultation Services to Independent Authors, Students, Business Executives, and any other Writer-in-Need who would like to develop a Story Idea or Requirement into a Manuscript or prepare a Manuscript for Publication.
