Molly McCaffrey earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism at Indiana University before studying literature and creative writing in graduate school, receiving her master’s degree from Miami University and her doctorate from the University of Cincinnati.
Born in Baltimore to one set of parents and adopted by another, she was raised in New Jersey and has lived in thirteen states. She moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky, over a decade ago, and in 2012, the Commonwealth of Kentucky bestowed on her its highest honor, that of Kentucky Colonel.
She is the author of two small press books—a memoir and a collection of stories—and her work has appeared in various publications, including Aesthetica, The Independent, USA Today, Psychology Today, The Satirist, and Medium. She has been nominated five times for the Pushcart Prize and currently serves on the SCBWI Midsouth conference committee. She also co-directs the Warren County Public Library’s Get Lit book club.
When Molly isn’t reading or writing, she’s on the move—running, biking, swimming, hiking, and kayaking—and loves to compete in local triathlons.
