Casey Claunch


I enjoy long walks on the beach but sadly live landlocked in Austin, TX. To compensate I enjoy long walks pacing my hallway while figuring out what the hell’s going to happen next in my book.

I also like to juggle, mainly while pacing the hallway, oh, and barbecue is good too–in the hallway and elsewhere.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I'm not exactly sure when I first started writing, but I do remember my first attempt to write a book. I was in the third grade. I really loved the book, The Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing, by Judy Blume. My eight-year-old ego boomed with the knowledge that I'd read a book with "Fourth Grade" in the title when I was seven and in the second grade. Anyhow, I was dead set on writing a sequel to the book that made my head swell. I think I got, maybe, ten or twelve loose leaf notebook pages in before I realized that, not only was there already a sequel (Superfudge), but I had in fact read it. Boy was I pissed.
What's the story behind your latest book?
In some ways it's a personal story. For many years I've been stuck between a romantic rock and a casual sex hard place, never really finding comfort or desire on either side, and so by default I'd landed in limbo, caught smack dab in the middle of this spectrum. I guess I hoped that in writing Searching for Swimmers I might finally figure out where I stand and maybe even discover what I really want out of life.
