Rebecca Kelley is the author of Broken Homes and Gardens and co-author of The Eco-nomical Baby Guide. She teaches writing at Oregon College of Art & Craft. Her work is infused with the sensibilities of the young creative class that uses the Pacific Northwest as its way station for earnest, well-meaning adventuring to the world at large. At home, her fiction turns to the quiet dramas of urban domestic life: growing tomatoes, making pancakes, examining the nature and validity of love and marriage in the context of our modern world.

Rebecca’s work has appeared in Scholastic Parent and Child, Metro Parent, Stealing Time magazine, Propeller, and xoJane.

She lives in northeast Portland.

“She would be like that character in a novel she read once about the woman who rid herself of everything she owned, item by item. She kept paring down, paring down until all she had left could fit in her handbag. Then she walked out the door and left the house behind, too.”
Rebecca Kelley, Broken Homes & Gardens

“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

“People who are strangers to liquor are incapable of talking about literature.”
Mo Yan

“I have never found it difficult, as some do, to speak to children. All one has to do is pretend that they're some kind of intelligent farm animal: a pig, perhaps, or a horse.”
Hanya Yanagihara, The People in the Trees
