Interview with J.M. Snyder

What are your five favorite books, and why?
My five favorite books would be:

1) Watership Down by Richard Adams -- it's a whirlwind adventure. I reread it every few years to remind myself how wonderful it is.

2) 11/22/63 by Stephen King -- it's breath-taking and heart-breaking at the same time. Another book I reread often.

3) Even Cowgirls Get the Blues -- the first book I ever read with queer content. I loved it in college because it broadened my horizons. And it's a great read.

4) The Magicians trilogy by Lev Grossman -- it's a grown up Harry Potter meets Chronicles of Narnia. It's three books, not one, but it's amazing.

5) Master of the Game by Sidney Sheldon -- this has been a favorite of mine since childhood (I read well above my age and apparently my parents had no problems with that).
What do you read for pleasure?
I love to read off the wall nonfiction -- anything about diseases, death, odd creepypasta, true crime, murders, disappearances, stuff like that. As for fiction, I love thrillers that keep you turning the page (like "Gone Girl"). I also love speculative fiction -- sci-fi, fantasy, horror, especially dystopias, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic stories, and anything with zombies. What can I say? I have weird tastes.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have an older Kindle 4, but I also read on my iPod when I'm stuck in line or bored somewhere and have it with me.
Describe your desk
My desk is heavy, wooden, and very old. My father got it for me when I was younger because the college where he worked was replacing the desks in the student dormitories. After I graduated from college, I shellacked the top and the drawer fronts with a blue and green plaid gift wrap that's held up pretty well all these years. I've modified the long drawer in front of the chair well to keep my keyboard and mouse there. On top of the desk is my laptop, three external hard drives (I'm a firm believer in backing everything up), a wireless printer, and one of my cats. Seriously, one of them is always on the desk. Probably because they like the heat the laptop gives off. Or they just want to be in the middle of everything.
When did you first start writing?
I like to say I first started writing when I was 8 -- which is true -- but that I didn't start out writing then what I write now (gay erotic romance). I started out in fantasy like most everyone does, but along came the internet and I discovered slash fanfic, and the rest, as they say, is history.
What are you working on next?
I have a list of ideas for future stories, and have started two or three. At the moment I'm about to start a new one (I shouldn't, I should finish something else first, but oh well). It's a romance between an actor on location and a police officer assigned to block off roads to the set. It was inspired when my own street was shut down while a crew filmed scenes form the upcoming Harriet Tubman movie at the building next to my apartment.
Who are your favorite authors?
Though I write romance, I tend to read stories that aren't. My favorite author is Stephen King; I also love Margaret Atwood, Charles Pellegrino, John Krakauer, Tom Robbins, Rick Riordan, and JK Rowling.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Ha! My cats. They get fussy if I oversleep because they want to eat.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Most of my time is spent running JMS Books, a small LGBTQ press I began in 2010. When I'm not working or writing, I love to read, cross stitch, and play Legend of Zelda.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When I was younger, I was the queen of unfinished prose. I started a number of stories but never finished any. My first completed novel was "The Magical Stones of Pharr," which I finished my first year of college. It then sat in the back of my closet for 20+ years, and only after I was publishing regularly did I pull it out, dust it off, cut it in half just about, and published it.
