Harvey Chapman became interested in novel writing in his teens and set about teaching himself the rules of writing fiction.

Harvey Chapman

Several hundred “how to” books and a dozen courses later, his novel hadn’t progressed very much… but he’d become an unwitting expert in the theory of how to write novels!

He figured his time would be best spent teaching folks what he’d learnt.

He founded Novel Writing Help in 2008 with the simple aim (albeit a slightly big-headed one) of becoming THE go-to resource for aspiring novel writers – newcomers and the more experienced alike.

Harvey lives and works in Woodbridge, England.

His hobbies include walking, plugging away at that unfinished novel and talking about himself in the third person.
