Gregory A. Wilson is currently an Associate Professor of English at St. John's University in New York City, where he teaches courses in creative writing, Renaissance drama and other subjects.  His first academic book, The Problem in the Middle: Liminal Space and the Court Masque, 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 Five Star Press in 2009.  He has published several articles in the SFWA Bulletin and has several short stories due out in various anthologies later this year. He is a regular panelist at conferences across the country and is a member of Codex, the Writers' Symposium, Backspace, Absolute Write, 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 agents and publishers, while working on a fourth. On other related fronts, he did character work and flavor text for the hit fantasy card game Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, and along with fellow speculative fiction author Brad Beaulieu is the co-host of the podcast Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans, a show which discusses (and interviews the creators and illustrators of) speculative fiction of all sorts and types. 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.
