OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF KELSEY OLESEN
A creative soul with dyslexia is not the kind of person you expect to become an academic and an author, yet that is exactly who I am. Raised with a love of books, I struggled to read as a child and now passionately defend the human right to education. I have a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine Stonecoast program, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology and Creative Writing with a minor in Evolutionary Biology from the University of Arizona.
Books are my life and education is my passion. I am currently applying for collegiate teaching positions in San Diego, CA and querying representation for my Young Adult Fantasy series of fairy tale retellings. My feminist critiques of popular YA Fantasy novels, reviews of upcoming diverse literature, and advice for aspiring authors can be found on my author blog.
