Author Bio
Joyce Carol Oates
The daughter of a tool-and-die designer from upstate New York, Oates was given a typewriter at 14 and never looked back. A famously prolific writer, she typically publishes several novels, short stories, poems and critical articles every year while also maintaining an active teaching career. She attributes her prolific career to regular hours and a love of what she does. Oates's successes began early: she was valedictorian of her class at Syracuse University and then went on to earn an M.A. in English literature at the University of Wisconsin where, in 1961, she met Raymond J. Smith; they were married three months later. She and Smith taught at various colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada, including Princeton. Together, they ran the Ontario Review Press, which they founded in 1974. Oates was devastated in 2008 when Smith died due to complications of pneumonia, and claimed that her only solace came from intensive literary study and criticism. Oates writes in a variety of fiction genres, including a series of suspense novels written under the name Rosamond Smith, as well as some young adult works. She is best known for writing about human evil or people in bizarre and often violent situations, and many of her books reflect her working-class Upstate New York background.
