About my cryptic crossword puzzles

Assessing the level of difficulty of a cryptic crossword puzzle is subjective. I rate my cryptic crossword puzzles as medium to hard. That means newcomers to cryptic crossword puzzles may find my cryptic crossword puzzles are quite challenging, although even beginners should be able to solve some of the clues in each cryptic crossword puzzle.

More experienced cryptic crossword puzzle solvers will probably be able to finish most, if not all, of my cryptic crossword puzzles.
