Arthur Herzog is an award-winning novelist, non-fiction writer and journalist,
renowned for his best-selling novels The Swarm, Orca (both made
into popular movies), and IQ 83, hailed by the British press as
one of the best science fiction works ever written.
IQ 83 is currently under development for a feature film by Dreamworks.
Herzog, an obvious lover of literature, feels passionate about the craft
of writing and fathered a book and lecture series called How to Write
Almost Anything Better--And Faster! to show others how to achieve what
he knows is possible.
Herzog teaches a practical approach to writing based on his belief that
at least 75% of the writing process is proper preparation. "Discipline
is half the battle," he says, "Writing is more method and organization
The concise, painless method Herzog has patterned leads the neophyte
or the pro through five steps to better writing: Psyche Yourself Out; Sit
Yourself Down; The Right Idea; The Write Stuff; and Read It and Weep.
The ability to write feels Herzog, is imperative to a life fulfilled. A person who can't write is going to be ever more deprived in a world based on communication. "If you can't write well," notes the author, "You lose a tremendous occupational level."
Herzog feels he can best describe his life as a series of turning points:
A New Yorker, avid reader, and world traveler, Herzog desires to write more fiction and non-fiction books, and perhaps some philosophical works.
