Mary Elizabeth Pope was raised in Michigan with roots deep in the Missouri Bootheel and Northeast Arkansas. She holds a Ph.D in English and Creative Writing from University of Iowa, and is Professor of English at Emmanuel College in Boston. Her work has appeared in Arkansas Review, Florida Review, Bellingham Review, Ascent, Passages North, and Fugue, among others. She lives outside Boston with her husband.
Mary Elizabeth Pope’s short story “Moulting” originally appeared in the Spring 2013 Issue of Evening Street Review. It was inspired by the Brood X Cicada invasion while she was living in Baltimore in 2004. “Moulting” was later included in her collection of short fiction, Divining Venus: Stories (The Waywiser Press).

Her novel The Gods of Green County will be published in October by Blair. Set in depression-era rural Arkansas, it is based on two legal cases in her father’s family—her great uncle’s murder by a local sheriff, and her grandmother’s botched sanity hearing. The Gods of Green County  follows the story of two families whose lives are forever changed by these events. It can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com: The Gods of Green County: A Novel (9781949467710): Pope, Mary Elizabeth: Books, blairpub.com, or anywhere books are sold.
