Francois Bereaud celebrated turning 50 a few years back by completing an MFA at San Diego State University. He was the bosque journal’s “Discovery Author Award” winner in 2017. In the last year, he has been published online at Rejected Manuscripts, Sundial Magazine, The Write Launch, the Dillydoun Review, Roi Fainenant Press, and in print at Blood & Bourbon and ABQ InPrint. He earned a Pushcart nomination for his essay in The Twin Bill.
He has written a novel and two short story collections which he dreams of publishing and seeing in the window of his beloved neighborhood bookstore.
In his non-writing life, he is a husband, dad, lifelong educator now as a full-time community college math professor, retired youth soccer coach, mentor to a Congolese refugee family, and mediocre hockey player.
