Mary Casey has kept a secret diary since age ten and enjoyed playing alone in the closet as a child, experiences she imagines led to writing fiction as an adult. 

She has a BA in English literature and an MA in Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Wisconsin Madison.  By day, she has taught ESL, worked as a technical writer, helped restore an urban woods, and given birth; by night, she has written a secret stash of short stories that she keeps in her closet, except for the title story in the anthology Bad Jobs: My Last Shift at Albert Wong’s Pagoda and Other Ugly Tales of the Workplace.

Casey is currently working on a novel about a man, two women, and a telescope during the first years of the great famine in Ireland.
