About the Author

Fred Venturini has eleven scars from eleven separate incidents, the most interesting of which is the time he was set on fire. For the others, just ask. His short fiction has been featured in the Booked Anthology, Noir at the Bar 2, and Chuck Palahniuk's Burnt Toungues anthology. He is the acclaimed author of The Heart Does Not Grow Back and the forthcoming The Escape of Light (Turner, 2019). On the basketball court, he is a three-point specialist and defensive liability. He lives in Southern Illinois with his wife and daughter.
