Amor Libris: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Nico Laeser: I’m originally from the UK, but now reside in the Pacific Northwest. I am a writer of fiction, which seems to cross into many genres, but all with a common theme of transcendence.
Amor Libris: What is your favorite motivational phrase, and why?
Nico Laeser: As a writer, my favorite motivational phrases are these:
“The first draft of anything is shit.” ~Ernest Hemingway~
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” ~Kurt Vonnegut~
As a person, I like the phrase “You are what you eat.” I’m a pineapple, both sweet and sour on the inside and spiky on the outside. I try to live by “What goes around comes around.”
Amor Libris: What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Nico Laeser: When I’m not writing, I think about writing, read about writing, read other people’s writing, or paint (usually cover art for my writing). When I can pry myself away from art and literature, I write, play and record music, and spend time with my beautiful wife and children. I’m also a fan of archery.
Amor Libris: What books and/or authors have influenced you the most?
Nico Laeser: My brain is so crammed full of stories I’ve read over the years, it’s impossible to single out any one book or author as a direct influence on my style. There are many authors I go back to and read again and again, not because our styles are similar, but because they are so different that I can’t tell how the trick is done, and it’s still magic. I love everything from Robert A. Heinlein and all the classic Science Fiction authors to Hemingway, Vonnegut, Palahniuk, Picoult, and almost anything that is well written. My tastes are varied and ever expanding. Too many books to read, and too little time.
