Brockmeier is an award-winning novelist and short story writer who has been called one of “America’s best practitioners of fabulist fiction.” He has received Arkansas’ top literary prizes (the Porter Fund Award for Literary Excellence and the Worthen Prize), and has been recognized nationally with numerous awards, including three O. Henry prizes, for his masterful use of figurative language in stories that combine reality and fantasy. Brockmeier was born in 1972 in Hialeah, Florida. He now lives in Arkansas.
