Mini Interview with JJ CROMER: Your childhood ambition: To be a cryptozoologist. Something you treasure: A Japanese teapot, a yokode kyusu. It was a gift from my partner. I make her tea with it every day. Your worst habit: Probably my attitude to stress. Or my infrequent showering. Self-doubt? Indecision, probably. Lots, not sure. The aspect of your work that’s most important to you: The way the next piece nearly always grows from the current piece. My work’s weedy that way. Your first job: Server at Pizza Hut. Someone whose work you highly recommend: Iain M. Banks. View more of JJ Cromer’s work here.
