McNally is the author of the John Simmons Award-winning story collection "Troublemakers," the award-winning novel "Book of Ralph," and the recent comic novel "America's Report Card."

He also is a prolific anthologist, with his recent effort, "When I Was a Loser," about high school experiences, being a top seller. He is the Olen R. Nalley Associate Professor of English at Wake Forest University.
