Welcome to the exclusive Internet home of D. J. Herda, award-winning author, photojournalist, editor, reporter, and ghostwriter. We hope you'll take advantage of your time here to look around, check out Mr. Herda's latest (and future) book offerings, touch base, and share with him your own literary endeavors and projects.

With more than eighty books and thousands of short stories, articles, columns, and scripts to his credit, D. J. Herda lives to write. But he also takes time to provide encouragement and advice to successful writers-in-the-making everywhere. (Please see the "Struggling Writers" page in the menu above.)

A superb craftsman with more than half a century of tempered-steel experience behind him, he knows publishing from both sides of the desk, from inside-out. He also knows the uphill battle that struggling young (and not so young!) authors face today and continues to honor a lifelong commitment he made to the less fortunate members of his craft decades ago: helping talented, deserving authors succeed in an increasingly hostile and competitive marketplace.

A native of Chicago, Illinois, and a graduate of Columbia College, Herda has spent much of his adult life in the Rocky Mountain states of Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, and Utah.
