Interview with J. J. Krause

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love taking normal people, putting them in unusual circumstances and turning them loose to expand their horizons! Making the reader feel what that is like is such a rush for me. I've expanded my horizons a bunch. Care to join me?
What are you working on next?
I have a sexy sci-fi story that is just about done, and I want to flesh out (pardon the pun) the Triple Play story into a full length novel. Watch for them soon!
Who are your favorite authors?
Robert Heinlein will always be number one with me. Love Patricia Cornwell's 'Kay Scarpetta' series novels too.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Most of it revolves around internal combustion! I'm a huge car and motorcycle fan and teach high performance driving for a variety of groups all across the US. I currently have a 1988 BMW M3 Cabrio that is one of four in the US and a BMW K1300GT motorcycle.
But I'm not addicted. I can quit at any time. Seriously.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, and I've lost it in a flood in 2008. But it wasn't that great. It did however show me that I can write compellingly.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I distinctly remembering loving P.D. Eastman's Are You My Mother? I sat in my mother's lap and read that over and over and over and...
How do you approach cover design?
I usually have a pretty good idea of what I want. Then it is just a matter of taking or finding the image I see in my mind's eye.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Right now it is a nook HD but I'm not fixated on a platform or brand.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small religious town in Northern Indiana. As I got older I realized the church was trying to kill a very big part of who I was and that was that. I haven't looked back since!
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first story back in college in the 80s, but it wasn't erotic in nature. My first erotic story was 'Dial 911' in 2006.
