"A war story unlike any other." Tyler Cabot Esquire

Disappointed in the quality of media coverage and determined to see the war for himself, M. C. embedded with JSOF in Al Anbar Province, Iraq as a field reporter in 2008.

A section of his forthcoming novel The Seventy-Fourth Virgin was awarded a Pushcart Prize, and has appeared in part in Esquire, Epiphany and The Gettysburg Review.

Fiction and nonfiction works of his have appeared in Esquire, The Mantle, The Missouri Review, The Gettysburg Review, Mayday, Monkeybicycle, Epiphany, The Literary Review, and other journals and anthologies.

Currently pioneering Global War on Terror Studies as a PhD candidate at University of North Carolina at Greensboro, M. C. lives in Greensboro, NC with Yorick the Corgi, whose interruptions to the writing process are frequent, but welcome.
