The Short Bio
The Less Short Bio
James Brush lives in Austin, TX where he teaches high school English. He claims Newport, RI as his hometown, but after twenty-some-odd years in central Texas, he can’t imagine living anywhere without a great Mexican restaurant on every corner. He earned his MA at the University of Texas at Austin where he was a James Michener Fellow at the Texas Center for Writers. He is the author of Highway Sky, the Pushcart-nominated Six October Stones, Birds Nobody Loves, A Place Without a Postcard, and numerous scraps of paper around his house. His favorite thing to do is hang out and spend time with his wife and young son. You can find him online at Coyote Mercury or anywhere good enchiladas are served. He also edits the online literary journal Gnarled Oak.
