John Enright, born in 1952, grew up in Chicago. He met his wife, Marsha Familaro Enright, at a college showing of The Fountainhead movie in 1973. They lived in New York City for some years after completing their undergraduate educations, but returned to Chicago in 1980. They are the parents of three children, one of whom, Noelle, died in 1993 at the age of nine. A collection of John's poetry, Starbound And Other Poems was recently brought out by Axton Publishing.
