Will Knauss is a child of the seventies. When he wasn’t twirling around on the playground (like Lynda Carter from "Wonder Woman"), he wrote stories and performed plays for family members. Enthusiasm for his theatrical presentations varied. Before becoming an author, Will’s work experience ranged from hotel housekeeper to retail clerk. While living in New York, he even worked as a Wax Museum tour guide. In 1995 he asked the man who would eventually become his husband on a date. No Netflix and chill for them, though, remember, this was the Dark Ages (aka the midnineties). They went to an actual theater to see the John Carpenter remake of "Village of the Damned." They have been inseparable ever since. Each week, Will co-hosts the "Big Gay Fiction Podcast" and the "Big Gay Author Podcast," shows he co-created with his husband and fellow author, Jeff Adams.
