Kelly Link's Background:
Link has taught writing at numerous schools and workshops around the country. She currently teaches a short story writing course at Smith College, near the home she shares with her husband in Northampton, Massachusetts.
In 2000, Kelly Link and her husband, Gavin Grant, founded Small Beer Press, a small publishing house, "committed to publishing short story collections and novels by authors we feel are slipping through the cracks."
Kelly Link's Writing:
Link is the author of three collections of short stories: Stranger Things Happen (2001), which was a Salon Book of the Year and a Village Voice favorite; Magic for Beginners (2006), which won the Locus Award for the best short story collection; and Pretty Monsters (2008).
