Robert McGee is a native Texan who spends much of his non-writing time mentoring an autistic teen while creating a self-sufficient homestead near Asheville, NC, where he grows (or barters for) most of his food. His stories have been published by (or are forthcoming in) The Sun Magazine, Carve, Raleigh Quarterly, The L Magazine and Timber Creek Review. “Fats”, his story about mobsters gambling on Little League Baseball, is being developed as a feature film. His work has been included in three books: Short Stories Illustrated by Artists (Front Forty Press), NPR’s National Story Project Anthology, I Thought My Father Was God (edited by Paul Auster) and The Mysterious Life of the Heart: Stories from The Sun about Passion, Longing, and Love. Many of these pieces come from Fragile, a recently-completed collection of linked stories dealing with office workers. McGee is now at work on at least two novels, one of which is called My Memoir.
