Author Work Space: John Beyer
‘A writer’s workspace must be large enough to accommodate those things which will inspire the writer to write. A room large enough to host guests to discuss world events – room enough for a glass of sherry and perhaps a quartet singing a new song. Stop – okay, a reality check – a desk, a keyboard, a pen and pad of paper, are all a writer needs. Inspiration does not need anything more than imagination – my study is eclectic from the travels my wife and I have done through the years. Sometimes it is messy and sometimes neat – but always – always – I remember the purpose of my study and that is to write.’
Former street cop, training officer and member of SWAT John Beyer has been writing most of his life. He’s traveled to at least 23 countries (and was actually shot in the head in Spain in 2000 during a march between Neo Nazis and Communists two days after running with the bulls in Pamplona). He was caught in a hurricane off the coast of east Baja (Bahia de los Angeles) while kayaking and lived to tell about it. Essentially, it’s hard to tell where experience leaves off and fiction takes over. You’ll want to read his books. For more about John, check out his website, blog and twitter account. His novel SOFT TARGET can be found on Amazon.
