Karelia Stetz-Waters

Karelia Stetz-Waters is an English professor by day and writer by night (and early morning). She has a BA from Smith College in Comparative Literature and an MA in English from the University of Oregon. Other formative experiences include a childhood spent roaming the Oregon woods and several years spent exploring Portland as a broke 20-something, which is the only way to experience Oregon’s coolest, weirdest city. She now lives with her wife, Fay, her pug dog, Lord Byron, and her cat, Cyrus the Disemboweler. She teaches at a rural community college which  provides ample inspiration for writing, as the college attracts all walks of life, from Sudanese refugees to fresh-out-of-the-closet drag queens. Her interests include large snakes, conjoined twins, corn mazes, lesbians, popular science books on neurology, and any roadside attraction that purports to have the world’s largest ball of twine.  She publishes with Sapphire Books Ooligan Press at Portland State University, and Grand Central Publishing part of the Hachette Book Group.

  1. Hi Karelia. One of my Goodreads friends added The Purveyor so we can all add it to our To Read piles. Time to update your author photo on Goodreads. :)

  2. Karelia, I haven’t seen you in a few decades! We last visited Corvallis in 1982! However, we were on a tour in Russia and either skirted Karelia or maybe even went through a bit of it on our way to St. Petersburg. We were there in September, and it was open with trees. Pleasant. Very rural. A big sky. I am sure your parents are very proud of your accomplishments.

I'd love to hear from you. Click here!
