Blake Kilgore lives in Burlington, New Jersey, with his wife and four sons. Aside from during drive time, people there treat him with kindness, and he is at ease living among the old and tall forests of the Garden State. But his lingering accent verifies that his heart is still Texan and Okie. Blake is perplexed by, yet clings to, faith; both sides of this struggle can be found in his writing, which has recently appeared in The Alembic, Forge, ginosko, The Stonecoast Review and Thrice Fiction.
