Marie Kenney completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri - St. Louis with a degree in English before entering the MFA program. She was born and raised in Saint Louis, the middle child of thirteen children, all of whom surpass her in talent and good looks. These facts are not unrelated to the type and quantity of stories she has to tell. Like most people, she is shamelessly proud of her pretentious obsession with coffee. Marie was once told she would play an excellent Rhoda Penmark. As an undergraduate, she has been published in UMSL's own Litmag and Bellerive. Currently, she is the Writers in the Schools liaison for UMSL, and is working towards completing all her unfinished short stories and squatting her body weight.
