Elizabeth Geoghegan writes in English, dreams in Italian, and wishes she could remember how to speak French. She is the author of Natural Disasters: Stories and The Marco Chronicles: To Rome Without Love—a Shebooks best-seller, an Amazon best-selling Kindle Single, a selection for The Best Travel Writing, Volume 10, and the Travelers’ Tales Solas Gold Prize winner for Memoir. Most recently, her essay “Smoking with Lucia Berlin,” was among The Paris Review’s “Best of 2015.” Geoghegan earned an MFA in Fiction Writing from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago and both an MA in Creative Writing and BA in English from The University of Colorado at Boulder. Her writing explores the intersection between geography and intimacy and she is currently at work on an untitled novel. She lives in Rome on a dead-end street between a convent and a jail.
