H.G. McCrary lives on an island in a lake in Western Washington State with his wife, his son, and a pair of Labradors. His fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Cream City Review and Present Tense. He is likely in search of a coffee at the moment, or if the hour is right a beer. A few years back, he received his MFA in Creative Writing from Pacific University and has been working, word to word, coffee to beer, on a novel each day since.
