Author Biography

C. Bruce Aufhammer attended Rollins College where he earned his Bachelor and Masters Degrees. For almost thirty years he taught English at what has become Seminole State College, serving for nearly a decade as English Department Chair. During half of his summers at SSC, he taught sailing in Maine; and he, his wife, and daughter regularly sailed their sloop, Icarus, among the bays and barrier islands of Florida's Gulf Of Mexico waters from the Cedar Keys to Captiva. They also bareboat chartered sailboats in British Columbia, the Sea of Cortez, New Zealand, Tonga, and Lake Huron. While teaching at Seminole he wrote poetry--30 or so of his poems were published in small journals and collections; a volume of his poetry entitled Singing With Coyote was published in 1990. In 1997 a poem of his was awarded The Thomas Burnett Swann Poetry Prize from the Gwendolyn Brooks Writers Association of Florida. The summer of 1996, after retiring from Seminole, enthralled and challenged by the no-holds-barred honesty of her narrator's voice, he was accepted for admission to Pam Houston's Advanced Fiction Workshop at the FAWC in Provincetown. Houston and Steve Smith as well as other workshop members assured him the narrative line in his poetry was indicative he'd do well writing fiction. To be as forthright in his own fiction as he found Houston's characters to be, he had to come out. Thus began his apprenticeship living as a queer man and writing prose. He is divorced, currently teaches creative writing as an out adjunct professor at Rollins College, and writes overlooking Lake Concord in Orlando, a few blocks from the Jack Kerouac House, and just the corner of one small intervening town south of Zora Neal Hurston's Eatonville.
