James R. Silvestri


Born in Queens, New York in 1977, James R. Silvestri is still trying to find his place in the world, but is enjoying the ride along the way. He graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 1999 and has worked as a supermarket cashier, a dishwasher, a barback, a customer service representative, a freelance writer, a marketing assistant and a parochial school teacher. He is currently an adjunct professor of English at TCI School of Technology in Manhattan and lives in a Queens apartment that could seriously use some dusting.

Silvestri is the author of three screenplays, one of which, “Bag Man Ray,” is currently in super low-budget independent production. His short stories have appeared/will appear in the literary journals “Sick of Em? The Anti-Literary Journal,” “Keruoac’s Dog Magazine,” “Sci-Fi Short Story Magazine,” “The Fear of Monkeys,” and “Children, Churches & Daddies” as well as the anthologies “Hawthorn Road,” “Strange Tales: An Anthology” and “For the Oceans.”
