Isabella David McCaffrey is a writer and poet and 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. Other work has appeared, or is forthcoming, in Black Heart Magazine, The Lascaux Review, Slippery Elm, 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 (French and American), a former actor, high school teacher, and a current stay-at-home mother to a feisty toddler and an even needier chocolate cocker spaniel. With her husband, a professional trumpet player, the couple have begun a jazz-folk duo and hope to have a set together soon. Her husband is insisting they call themselves The Isabelles, and since she took his last name, that seems only fair. Isabella is currently at work on a novel and a chapbook, combining poetry with micro-fiction. She occasionally illustrates her work and would like to work on a book of illustrated poems and stories when she finishes her current projects. An example can be seen here at Postcard Poems and Prose.
