Introduction A.G. Devitt is a writer and educator. He is not comfortable writing about himself in the third person, so he will let someone else do it. The following is from an interview conducted by Geoffrey H. Goodwin for Eclectica Magazine: "His vignettes are stories of confrontation, often a loner male coming to grips with self-defined failure as an opportunity for growth or transformation, be it in dating or street fighting. His characters worry about letting people down and being brave when no one notices. It's no surprise that they tend to speak in clipped fragments. "His settings are often less defined than the emotional landscapes inside his characters but, even without careful geography, the macho noir stories play out in small cities and big towns that feel like a darker version of upstate New York that only comes out at night." He holds three degrees and teaches creative writing at the college level. He shuns cell phones and high fructose corn syrup, and he hates butter.
