Meet Our Readers: Gregory A. Wilson

            

Gregory A. Wilson is currently an Associate Professor of English at St. John's University in New York City, where he teaches creative writing and fantasy fiction along with various other courses in literature. His first academic book was published by Clemson University Press in 2007; on the creative side, he has won an award for a national playwriting contest, and his first novel, a work of fantasy entitled The Third Sign, was published by Gale Cengage in the summer of 2009.

He regularly reads from his work at conferences across the country and is a member of Codex, the Writers' Symposium, Backspace, and several other author groups on and offline. He is currently in the process of submitting his second and third novels, Icarus and Grayshade respectively, to publishers, represented in this effort by Roger Williams of the Publish or Perish Literary Agency. With fellow speculative fiction author Brad Beaulieu, he co-hosts Speculate!: The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.

He lives with his wife Clea, daughter Senavene—named at his wife's urging for a character in The Third Sign, for which he hopes his daughter will forgive him—and dog Lilo in Riverdale, NY.
