Hi there! I go by Maura Yzmore. Maura1

This website is devoted to my fiction-penning pursuits; I focus on short stories and flash. The pen name Maura Yzmore is a self-deprecating joke — “more is more” is the opposite of “less is more,” the essence of short-form writing.

I am a professor at a university in the U.S. My job involves quantum mechanics, dry-erase markers, geeky puns, and lots of technical writing.

In my spare time, I write, draw, kickbox, overcaffeinate, and wrangle unruly offspring. I am also an editor at 101 Words.

While you’re here, enjoy published stories or check out useful resources. You can reach me at maura dot yzmore at gmail or @MauraYzmore on Twitter.
