David Austin is a pharmacy technician by day and a graduate student in English at the University of Montevallo by night. When he isn’t busy with either of those, his hobbies include playing soccer in ninety-five degree weather and adding bacon to things that did not originally contain bacon. So far, grilled cheese is the winner. “The Liar” is David’s fourth published story. He lives in Birmingham, Alabama, which isn’t as bad as it sounds, with his fiance and twenty-five pound cat, who is exactly as big as she sounds. He can be reached at DavidAustinFiction@gmail.com for questions, comments, or bacon-related suggestions. For more of David’s work, see http://crossedgenres.com/magazine/020-static/.
