Pamela DiFrancesco is a writer with a community college degree in journalism, a fancy art school degree in fiction and a penchant for community organizing. A native of Pennsylvania coal country, Pamela lives in Astoria, Queens, while writing and doing whatever else it takes to pay the bills. In the past, Pamela has worked for newspapers and taught children journalism in an after-school program. Pamela’s fiction can be found on the web at Cezanne’s Carrot and Monkeybicycle, in print in The Carolina Quarterly (who nominated “The Chuck Berry Tape Massacre” for the Best American Mystery Writing anthology), and The New Ohio Review. Her first novel is set for publication on February 1, 2015 from Medallion Press. When not writing, Pamela practices acts of love and kindness in hopes of a radically different world, and is preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse through acts of badassery.
