Owen Wyke

I write literary fiction, from my home in northeast Connecticut. Trees surrounding the house include the white oak, the sugar maple, the Japanese maple, the blue spruce, the black birch and the holly. Wee flora include the clover, scarlet pimpernel and purple loosestrife.

My coffee of choice is Lavazza, which must be dark and rich, because isn't it a forest drink, after all?

I'm partial to the typefaces JansonText LT and Trebuchet MS and use them exclusively these days, though I'm also fond of Palatino.

My novel-in-progress, Seely Catch, is all about myth and musing, and cumber hearts and quippish souls, and the promise of ancient names. Many trees are noted, none of them die. No one dies.

I am the founding and managing editor of the perfectly respected literary journal Gone Lawn, which I understand you've heard of.

If you have a presence on Twitter and/or Bluesky and/or Facebook then feel free to connect with me there. Otherwise, I can be reached at owenwyke13@gmail.com.
