I am a writer currently living in the Philadelphia area with my wife and two sons. I have a Bachelor’s in English from the University of Pittsburgh and an MFA in Creative Writing from the Mountainview Master of Fine Arts program.
My fiction has appeared on Akashic Books’ Mondays are Murder and Fri-SciFi. I am a contributing writer for Cognoscenti, the thoughts and opinions page of WBUR Boston. Two of my essays published there on race, identity, and parenting were picked up by NPR, and I have appeared on WBUR’s Weekend Edition. My non-fiction work has also appeared in Entropy Magazine. You can find me on Twitter @jverch75.
