Author Bios: Noley Reid

Noley Reid is the author of four books: the novels Pretend We Are Lovely (Tin House Books) and In the Breeze of Passing Things (MacAdam/Cage) and the short story collection So There! (SFSU Press). Her fourth book, a collection of stories called Origami Dogs (Autumn House Press), is about women, men, and the many, many dogs who share their lives. Her last book, Pretend We Are Lovely, was called “scrumptious” by O, The Oprah Magazine. Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in The Southern Review, The Rumpus, Meridian, Pithead Chapel, Split Lip Magazine, The Lily, Bustle, Tin House, Arts & Letters, and Los Angeles Review of Books. Reid taught creative writing for 18 years in colleges, universities, and community centers. Eight years ago, she gave up tenure to write fulltime but still seeks out teaching gigs from time to time because she misses it so. She lives in southwest Indiana with her two best boys, a rabbit, and two of the original origami dogs.
