Dr. Daniel McInerny shares this much with J.R.R. Tolkien: he is both a professor and writer of fiction. He is currently associate professor and chair of the philosophy department at Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia. In March 2023, he published his novel, The Good Death of Kate Montclair (Chrism Press), which his fellow Catholic novelist Maya Sinha has called “an instant classic of 21st century Catholic fiction.” In June 2024, Word on Fire Academic will bring out his scholarly monograph, The Way of Beauty: A Philosophical Reflection on the Arts. Visit his Substack, The Comic Muse, for more of his reflections on philosophy, the arts, technology, and culture.
