From website:

J. Robert King is the award-winning author of over twenty novels, most recently The Shadow of Reichenbach Falls and the Mad Merlin trilogy. Fifteen years ago, Rob founded the Alliterates, a cabal of writers in the Midwest and West Coast of the U.S. Rob also often takes to the stage, starring in local productions such as The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and Arsenic and Old Lace. He lives in Wisconsin with his lovely wife, three brilliant sons, and three less-than brilliant cats.

J. Robert King’s novels have exceeded his fingers and toes, which is reason to stop counting them. The novels—not the fingers and toes. When he got down to seventeen, he realized he should keep better track.

J. Robert King has always wanted to be either a novelist or an artist. He decided to become a novelist because he could buy a ream of paper for five bucks but couldn’t buy even a tube of paint for that much. At the time, he didn’t realize that artists get to work with naked models.

J. Robert King is J. Robert King because, when he was sixteen, he told his grandmother that his writing name would be Rizwald Zypper. She told him J. Robert King was strange enough.

J. Robert King has always preferred fantasy to reality. During his youth, this preference was considered a character flaw. During the last decade, this preference was considered wise.

J. Robert King is not an angry robot, though being an angry human, he feels a strong affinity. Whenever the robots start screwing things onto themselves or rebooting their brains, however, Rob excuses himself.

J. Robert King believes that writing is a sort of hypnosis. It causes rapid eye movements that induce a state of suggestibility and make people laugh and cry and see things that aren’t there. To Rob, a novel is successful if readers become convinced that they are chickens.
