Hi there! I go by Maura Yzmore.
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 large 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.
