Join us on October 25th at Trident Books & Cafe in Boston, when our guests will be Julie C. Day, Hillary Monahan, and Paul Tremblay. RSVP here!

Julie C. DayJulie C. Day has published over thirty stories in magazines such as Interzone, Podcastle, Black Static, and Split Lip Magazine. Her debut collection Uncommon Miracles is available from PS Publishing. In another exciting first, Julie also has a tabletop story game Divided Lights forthcoming from Evil Hat Productions. Julie’s fiction reflects her relish for the esoteric and scientific. She’s spent an inordinate amount of time researching such topics as the damselfly Ischnura hastate, the ancient city of Teotihuacan, quantum refrigerators, and the late-nineteenth-century Orphan Trains.

Julie lives in a small town in New England with her partner, children, a menagerie of variously sized animals, and an increasing amount of clutter and dust. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine and a Masters of Science in Microbiology from the University of Massachusetts. You can find her at @thisjulieday or on her blog stillwingingit.com. Café writing and long baths with paper books are also a thing.
