Paul Kilgore has practiced law since his graduation from the University of
Minnesota Law School. He dedicates the first hour of every day to writing.
Before breakfast, before the morning paper, before the radio, before
beginning his work day at the office, Paul Kilgore writes. His resulting
fiction, nonfiction, and poetry have appeared in numerous publications
including Prairie Schooner, Beloit Fiction Journal, and Blue Earth Review.
He has been a columnist for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and his work has
been featured on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. Kilgore is
a past winner of Minnesota Monthly’s Tamarack Award for Short Fiction. He
lives with his wife and two daughters in Duluth, Minnesota.
