Greg Bills received his B.A. from the University of Utah, his home state, and then graduated with an MFA from the University of California, Irvine.  When his first novel, Consider This Home, appeared from Simon & Schuster, Tony Kushner called it a “wonderful, exciting novel…fierce, funny, smart, observant, and at times, very sexy,” and Antonya Nelson in the Los Angeles Times stated that the ten-year-old main character was “one of the most memorable consciousnesses I’ve had the pleasure to inhabit in recent fiction.”  It was a Literary Guild alternate selection and was published in England by Marion Boyars.  Fearful Symmetry, his second novel, was published by Dutton/Penguin and also in trade paperback from Plume.  His stories and essays have appeared in various journals and reviews, including an essay “Jack and The Giant,” which was featured in Brothers and Beasts: An Anthology of Men on Fairy Tales.  Other recent work includes fiction in the Santa Monica Review and a retelling of the Ridinghood story in the Red Issue of Fairy Tale Review.  He has served on the fiction staff at the Squaw Valley Community of Writers Conference, and is currently a Professor of Creative Writing and Coordinator of the Visiting Writers Series at the University of Redlands.
