About S.D. Howard

Growing up, all I wanted to be was an author. I would spend hours a day daydreaming of writing a best-selling novel, win tons of awards, and make a living with my pen.


I was considered odd for wanting this, and people around me would suggest other job ideas that never seemed to ring true. Nothing fit like writing did.


I am many things these days; father, husband, author, friend, editor, son, business owner, storyteller, book nerd. At the center of it all, though, is writing. 


Writing is my passion. That is why I have reached out to help other authors on numerous occasions, either one on one or through developmental editing to help them bring their stories to life.


It is one of the reasons I created worksheets designed to help authors get their stories started; I saw so many of them struggling because of one thing or another that I decided to do something about it. Thus, the Getting Your Story Started Worksheets were born.


My goal is to help authors tell their stories because only they can tell it! I want to see their dreams come true!


I want to pick up your book off the bookshelf, buy it, and binge read until the sequel comes out.
