ENDORSEMENTS 

James Patterson: The first piece I had Peter Howe edit was, no coincidence, the first piece I had published. Thanks to Peter’s creative insights as well as his proofreading, my work has improved across all fields.

James Patterson is a fiction and travel writer. The piece he refers to can be found in Overland magazine: https://overlandmag.com/features/bolivia-james-patterson-issue-29/

Mike Chase: Writing is not a social art; it requires the presence of a familiar voice upon the often long and lonely path of words. Peter Howe is this voice – honouring the subject, keeping my reader on board, affirming my voice – whether generating material, crafting it, questioning it, refining it or binning it.  And he does his research too, coming back with reflections on other authors. I never feel criticised, rather I have an honest friend with whom I can be both vulnerable and courageous. I am grateful to know when we have a rendezvous planned.

Mike Chase is a Psychodrama Psychotherapist, a Mask Practitioner, and the author of Mask, Hawthorn Press 2017

Johannes Steuck: I am delighted to have found Peter Howe. He is meticulous without being pedantic; his modifications and corrections are sensitive and thoughtful and always clarify the text.

Johannes Steuck is an artist and the author of White Sand and Grey Sand, Anastasia 2015, The Catacombs, Vox Humana Press, 2002, and other works.
