Professor Elizabeth Geoghegan's Second E-Book "Natural Disasters" a Best Seller on Amazon

John Cabot University creative writing professor Elizabeth Geoghegan, author of the best selling The Marco Chronicles, is back with her second book, Natural Disasters.

Published by Shebooks, a San Francisco-based publisher specializing in women writers, Natural Disasters is currently on the Amazon best seller list for literary short stories.

From the publisher’s website:
In these two tales of obsessive love, Elizabeth Geoghegan, author of “The Marco Chronicles,” creates vivid portraits of strong women blinded by a weakness for a certain kind of guy—heartless, but impossible to resist. Whether her heroines are caught up in the chaos of Bangkok or lured into the deep woods of the Pacific Northwest, they struggle to find their way in a world where disaster is a natural consequence of the urgency of desire. In these dark, lyric stories, women meet life and their own instincts head on.

A member of JCU’s Department of English Language and Literature, Professor Geoghegan holds an MFA in fiction writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MA in creative writing from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She teaches Creative Nonfiction, Fiction, Travel Writing, and Writing the Eternal City. She is currently completing a short story collection and a novel set in Southeast Asia.

In Fall 2014 Professor Geoghegan is teaching CW/JRN 346 Creative Writing Workshop: Travel Writing. “In this course, students will have the added bonus of living in Rome while learning the craft of travel writing. Setting is a vital literary component and one I stress in all of my workshops, in particular in travel writing. For centuries, the city of Rome has inspired (and aggravated!) writers, but as my students will see, there is no limit to the number of stories the Roman landscape will offer them,” says Professor Geoghegan.
