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. Other work has appeared, or is forthcoming, in 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 (French and American), a mostly former actor on screen and the stage, a former high school teacher, and a very current stay-at-home mother to a feisty toddler and an even needier dog. In her very rare spare time, she writes a blog about sustainability with her sister, a fluvial geomorphologist and activist. It's a topic she's learning more about and becoming more passionate about all the time.
