Who runs ideas4writers?

Dave Haslett Kate Haslettideas4writers is run by Dave and Kate Haslett. They live in Devon, UK with their two daughters.

Dave has been writing since the age of 13, and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. He has written novels, non-fiction books, short stories, reviews, articles, scripts and screenplays. He came up with all the ideas and what ifs on this site, and wrote The Fastest Way to Write Your Book (included with your membership).

And as well as being a writer, Dave is also a computer specialist, programmer and trainer with over 20 years experience - so he knows how to fix your computer problems too!

Kate is our administrator and a former librarian - and she loves books. She looks after the day-to-day running of our site - answering the phone, post and emails, taking books to the post office, as well as editing and proofreading.

ideas4writers is a family-run website. We go the extra mile to take good care of you, to cheer your successes, and to find solutions to your individual problems and needs.

Who should become a member?

ideas4writers is for all writers, whatever their current level, and for anyone who thinks they'd like to give writing a try. We hope all our members will eventually become published and successful, but if you just want to write for your own enjoyment that's fine too.

What our members say

Donna Bateson:
"I would just like to say a big thank you for all the wonderful ideas and all the advice you have given. Because of ideas4writers my writing has improved, I have grown in confidence, and I have made several new friends. Thank you for making this writer a better one."

Christine Muir:
"I'm just writing to say how much I am enjoying using the site. I subscribed about 2 weeks ago, and have completed more pieces in that time than I had in the past 6 months. I particularly love the 'what ifs', and have written a few children's stories based around these, just for fun at the moment. I've also based some other stories around them. All it takes is that little prod in the morning and I'm away for the day now! A testimony to your site has to be that I am too busy writing to explore it all at the moment, and have passed the link on to my writing friends. Thanks for all the hard work you put into the site."

Geoff Nelder:
"ideas4writers is the first site I visit in the day and the last. For inspiration, for a laugh, to stimulate the imagination and to compare notes. It's as good as buttered toast."

Joe O'Donnell:
"ideas4writers is as essential to the working writer as the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook."

Nicky Parker:
"I think the ideas4writers website is excellent. The forums give lonely writers the opportunity to chat with each other and realise that we all share the same problems and doubts. Everybody is really friendly and encouraging and you leave the site feeling yes, I can do it!"

Terri Pine:
"ideas4writers is packed to the ceiling with plot-pushing ideas and valuable resources. It's also an addictive site and the cause of many lost writing hours; be strong!"

Tamsin Quantrell:
"I love the ideas4writers website because it has something for all writers. I've never seen so much information crammed onto one website! Keep up the good work."

Marie-Paule Schmoelz:
"From the moment I became a member of ideas4writers, I jump into creative mood first thing in the morning. By mid-morning I'm flying. Thanks for all the inspiration."

Tom Wright:
"In less than a month's membership I've started to write regularly again."

Michelle Downie:
"I've found the ideas4writers site very user-friendly! The plot suggestions given and the help sections are easy to understand and very helpful. Whenever I feel blocked I visit your site, my mind clears and I can get on with a couple of hours of writing. Thanks!!"

Tracey Woodley:
"As a new writer I am devouring any scrap of information that can help me get published, and ultimately earn a living from writing. The ideas4writers website is user-friendly and jam-packed with great ideas. You are my writer's gym, developing and building my writing muscles!"
