"Hiltler's Bomb is one of the cleverest and most satisfyingly written spy stories anywhere. It contains a fresh and exciting idea and it comes from a fresh and exciting mind."

—Globe and Mail


"Outstanding! I am well through the course and not only have I learned a great deal from my instructor Chris Scott but have had a lively correspondence with him as well. My new novel Under The Lion's Paw is being published by Umbrella Press. Both Chris and the school are mentioned in the acknowledgments. It has got to the point now that I get phone calls requesting articles. The course is wonderful."

—Steven Duff, Student


"It's hard to believe that I have nearly finished my course! I find it has permanently changed my life. I need to write as often as possible or I feel I'm missing something in my daily routine. Thanks a lot. You've brought me to the stage where I simply want to write more and get better at it."

—Glen Sargeant, Graduate


"I began this course with trepidation. Mr. Chris Scott has allayed all my fears and I have gained so much from the personal critique of my work. It has been a very professional, personal relationship where I felt a need to bring my writing up to your standards and hoped for your approval. The writing course, and my tutor, is something I will promote to anyone who asks. In fact, I received quite a few phone calls after my article in the local newspaper. Be assured, I sang the praises of the school. Thank you again for all you have done for me. I will stay in touch."

—Rosalie Ferris, Graduate
