Darrin Doyle

Darrin Doyle’s first novel, Revenge of the Teacher’s Pet: A Love Story, was described by the NY Times Book Review as “an original tale that earns its readers’ trust, and breaks their hearts a little in the process.” Publisher’s Weekly called his second novel The Girl Who Ate Kalamazoo “relentlessly inventive.” Of his story collection The Dark Will End the Dark, Best New Fiction writes "The overall effect is disturbing -- in a good way. These stories make us think." And his newest collection, Scoundrels Among Us, is “a majorly imaginative, evocative, and rewarding read.” (The Bookends Review)

He has received fellowships and scholarships from the Sewanee Writers Conference and the NY Summer Writers Institute. His short fiction has appeared in many literary magazines, most recently Okay Donkey, Hobart, Five:2:One, The Summerset Review, and Passages North. He lives in Mount Pleasant, Michigan and teaches at Central Michigan University.
