Author’s Corner: Step Inside Bill Kieffer’s Writing World

by Bill Kieffer


CoyotlplushieI write in the Mardi Gras room; our guest bedroom. It’s the only room in the house where the pets aren’t allowed, so that makes it a wee bit more productive than the other rooms in the house. I actually have an office, but I share that space with my wife… and my writing moods are too fragile to survive competing for the space most times.

It’s also where I keep my Cóyotl Award… it’s a plushie that watches me as I type.

What are your ‘must haves’ that make up your writing workspace?

Headphones and internet access. I’ve become quite addicted to Bear Radio.

And a door to keep the animals out.

Sometimes, I’ll head outside for a change of pace.

When he is not looking in the mirror, Bill Kieffer is actually a 6 foot tall gray anthropomorphic draft horse that types as Greyflank. He is a member of the Furry Writers Guild and has recently published short stories in several Furry anthologies. Past writing credits include comic books like “Billy Joe Van Helsing: Red Neck Vampire Hunter.” More recent publications include half a dozen short stories in various anthologies and The Goat: Building the Perfect Victim, which was released in October 2016 and won the Cóyotl Award the same year for best novella.

Out now: Cold Blood: Fatal Fables from Jaffa Press.
