Kelsey Lynn Ford (she/her) is a contemporary fantasy author and the Director of Bookish in the 'Burgh, Pittsburgh's Teen Book Festival presented by Riverstone Books, which is a production of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.  Originally from a small town in Pennsylvania, Kelsey received her Bachelor of Science in Advertising and Public Relations from Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL and her Master of Arts Management from Bath Spa University in Bath, England.  When she's not writing love stories filled with feminism and magic or working at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust creating and managing arts events for young people, you can find her visiting museums and libraries, reading copious amounts of books (for work and for fun), or crafting in her cozy apartment in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Kelsey is currently pursuing her Master of Library & Information Science and Master of Arts in Children's Literature degrees from Simmons University.
