Isabella David McCaffrey is a French-American writer and poet. She's the winner of the 2014 Danahy Fiction Prize for her short story "If the Meek Inherit the Earth, They'll Have Sons-of-Bitches for Lawyers", forthcoming in Tampa Review's 50th Anniversary edition. Her poetry chapbook has been longlisted for the Venture Award. Isabella is also a staff writer at Easy Street Mag, a new magazine about books and culture. Other work has appeared, or is forthcoming, in Harvard Book Store's Microchondria II, Best of Black Heart Magazine, The Lascaux Review, Slippery Elm, Adbusters, Contemporary Haibun Online, Apollo's Lyre, Postcard Shorts, and elsewhere in print and online. She has a B.A. from the University of Virginia, graduating as an Echols Scholar with a concentration in Comparative Literature. She's a dual citizen, a mostly former actor on screen and the stage, a former high school teacher (French and English but of course!), and a very current semi-stay-at-home mother to a feisty toddler and two even needier dogs. She lives in the New York area with her husband and their rapidly growing menagerie.
