Fevers of the Mind Quick-9 Interview with J.D.C.IV
with J.D. Casey IV
Q1: When did you start writing and first influences?
J.D. I entered a Halloween poem contest in grade school, won first prize, and that really fanned the flames.
My earliest influences were writers like Poe and Frost; as I got older I started getting into the beat poets. Then I discovered Hunter S. Thompson, and that’s when my passion for writing really sank in. All literary genres. not just poetry.
Q2: Who are your biggest influences today?
J.D. : Ron Whitehead, hands down, that man is a powerhouse of poetic energy. Not many people have dedicated their lives to the craft the way he has. He went all in, and I love that. That’s where I strive to be in the future.
Q3: Where did you grow up and how did that influence your writing? Have any travels away from home influence your work?
