After years of caring for wolves in a remote mountain sanctuary, Laura McGehee is pursuing her MFA in fiction at the University of Virginia, where she can be found embracing the trappings of modernity and/or rejecting the stain of man’s hand. Lately, this means running not to exercise, but to exorcise (demons). With her own stained hands, she writes about eros and isolation, so that you do not have to. Though of course, she welcomes the company. She is playing it cool. Please never leave. Her short-form work has been featured in Cactus Heart, Gertrude Press, Spider Road Press, and Sinister Wisdom.
