Guy Lancaster is a freelance writer, editor, the Jonesboro correspondent for the Arkansas Catholic, and a regular columnist for the Part-Time Heretic. He holds two degrees in English and is currently working on one in theology from St. Gregory’s University, as well as his Ph.D. in Heritage Studies from Arkansas State University. His fiction has previously appeared in Arkansas Review: A Journal of Delta Studies, and his first novel, Queen of Purgatory, is forthcoming in 2005 from Chenault and Gray. He lives in Jonesboro with his wife, Anna, and two cats. When not writing, he is probably homebrewing--the first place prize he shared with a friend for a batch of the dreaded Spanish Cock Ale they did together has only encouraged him in this hobby.
