Interview with John Cosper

Published 2023-01-18.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Nope. That was a long time ago, longer than I care to admit!
What are your favorite books?
I enjoy reading the Bible and anything by C.S. Lewis. I love the Hitchhiker's Guide series, Asimov's Foundation trilogy, the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan books, James Bond, and lately, the Gray Man series. I also read a lot of biographies and seem to have accumulated a number of books specifically on SNL and The Marx Brothers.
When did you first start writing?
Fourth grade, when I started writing a sequel to Bugsy Malone. No, really.
Describe your desk
Neat and clean, sometimes used. My office is filled with wrestling books, videos, photos, posters, and art work, along with a few cryptids. My Star Wars and James Bond/spy book shelves are not far away.
How do you approach cover design?
Depending on the project, I'll use a Fiverr artist or an artist I know. I've worked with some exceptional comic book artists and graphic designers.
What is your ebook reader of choice?
A real book with pages.
