Pieter Stalenhoef, an experienced financial services administrator and an aspiring novelist, absolutely enjoys spending his time writing when not working and is even close to the completion of two books. Spending so much time working on this book has made Pieter realize that writer's block is nothing more than an excuse. He has come to the conclusion that writers who have failed to undertake proper planning and/or are engaged in work that lacks clear structure are more likely to come across the writer's block because they have little idea about how to proceed with their writing. His observations also suggest that in some cases, the writer's block arises simply because of the fact that the writers have not given their ideas enough time to germinate before attempting to commit them to paper.

Pieter Stalenhoef had been working at the Boston office of a longstanding financial investment firm as an equity analyst for the last 10 years. Other than writing, Mr. Pieter spends his time doing photography or cooking when not working.
