Featured Interview With John Kurrle
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised is Southeast Iowa, out in the country. My family home had many acres of land, which is perfect for a child to grow up with. I had the space to let my imagination run free, as I had many great childhood adventures during my play time outside.
Nowadays, I live in Northern Virginia, near our nation’s capital. The yard is a lot smaller now, but my imagination is a lot bigger. I do have a white Persian cat that keeps me company whenever she decides I’m worthy of her attention.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I learned to read at an early age. By the time I was in the second grade I was already grabbing books from the fifth-grade section to read. My mother was a voracious reader, which is probably where I picked up my love for reading.
I only started writing recently. Last year, I wanted to see if I could write the kind of books that I’d want to read. It was an interesting time as it felt at times the story was riding me, spurs deep into my sides, while I hurriedly typed it out as fast as I could go.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Growing up, I was a big Science Fiction reader. Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, C.J. Cherryh, Andre Norton, L.E. Modesitt, and Robert Asprin were some of my favorite authors. Nowadays, my reading preferences have expanded. I love any history book by Kenneth C. Davis. I’ve been reading some of the history books by Will and Ariel Durant. For pure fun, I read “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” by Seth Grahame-Smith.
