Today, I’d like to introduce you to Casey Wolfe, asexual author of One Bullet and other m/m stories! He is currently working on other exciting things that I think my readers will want to keep an eye on! Check it out!
For Casey, writing equals existence. History nerd, film enthusiast, music lover, avid gamer, and just an all around geek. Add in an unapologetic addiction to loose leaf tea and you get the general picture. Married with furry four-legged children, Casey lives happily in the middle of nowhere Ohio.
What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever been given?
To ignore most writing advice. We all do things differently, and there’s typically no right or wrong answer.
What’s your favorite emoji?
I don’t typically use emojis, but I’d have to pick the paw print for obvious reasons.
Where do you like to read? What do you need for a good long reading session?
My bed is the best place. I can just relax and shut out the rest of the world. But, in truth, I will read anywhere, at anytime, any chance I get.
What are your top 3 go-to book recommendations?
At the moment, those would likely be Finding You, Finding Me, by Bailey Queen, According to Hoyle, by Abigail Roux, and Beyond Band of Brothers, by Dick Winters. Apparently, I’m on a historical kick.
What does your writing space look like?
Y’know, I’ve always admired other authors’ cozy little writing nooks or other special setups. Me? I just have my big, comfy chair. If the weather’s nice, I get to write on the porch. Or, when I’m feeling the need to just go somewhere else, I’ll hit the library or a cafe.
What is your favorite description of your books?
I’ve been told I try to kill people with “fluffy goodness,” and I’m totally fine with this, haha.
What is one of your biggest strengths in writing?
In my opinion, that’s creating real and memorable characters.
What inspired you to begin writing fiction?
I had stories I wanted to tell. Simple as that. That’s also what keeps me going. I just love telling tales, and helping people escape reality for a short time.
What is your biggest struggle in writing?
Editing is the bane of my existence. It’s not fun in the slightest, and it really hurts my creativity. I try not to edit as I write. I’d rather just keep on writing and deal with the continuity and other things when I’m finished.
What’s the first book you remember falling in love with?
Hawksong, by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes.
What was your last five star read? What made it a five star read?
How to Howl at the Moon, by Eli Easton. There was humor, and lots of warm, fuzzy feelings. Bonus for having shapeshifters. The characters were so great, and they were beautiful together. It’s so hard to find a book with low angst and/or low on the smut these days.
What other projects are you working on?
Currently, I’m working on an urban fantasy trilogy. Mages, witches, vampires, werecreatures, elves, dwarves, mers, and all sorts of fantastical races inhabit this world side-by-side with humans. It follows the same group of friends (and couples) on their own modern version of the epic quest.
What do you do to break out of writing slumps?
Step away from the project. Don’t force it. I’ll usually end up playing a video game, or doing some task around the house while listening to music. Even going for a drive. Getting out of my head is the best way to go about it. Sometimes I’ll even work on something else entirely if I really need to put myself somewhere else, or find my usual methods not working.
Where is the best place to contact you?
I love chatting with people on Tumblr and Facebook. You should stop in and see me sometime!
