The Last 50 Years
I have worked as an executive, a consultant, a e-learning course creator, and a computer programmer for over 50 years. During those years, I dabbled in writing fiction.
As one point, I spent serious time at it. But my then wife, now ex-wife, objected to the kinds of things I was writing. The relationship was important to me then. So I backed off.
Now I am back here writing.
Why Dirk Iver?
But writing fiction is still not a full time thing. I also still work as a consultant and e-learning creator, as well as offering professional development programs in soft or interpersonal skills.
The folks in that part of my life don’t always look positively on the kinds of things I write. So I use the Dirk Iver identity to create some distance between these 2 parts of my life.
I have always been fascinated by how things work. So I think and write about the process of creating, as well as writing fiction.
My Educational Background
I have worked for small and large, for-profit and not-for-profit, organizations.
My graduate education is in the psychology of the work place.
I use all of this experience as a source for my fiction writing.
