Elaine Ford

Elaine Ford is the author of five novels, including The Playhouse, Ivory Bright, Missed Connections, Monkey Bay, and Life Designs, and a book of short stories called The American Wife. Her short fiction has appeared widely in literary magazines and newspapers. In addition to her writing, Ford was also a wife, mother and grandmother, librarian, world traveler, and Harvard alumna. The natural curiosity that informed her work led to many other creative pursuits, including gardening, cooking, collecting works of art, and a fascination with her own genealogy. Ford taught literature and creative writing at the University of Maine for nearly two decades. At the time of her death in 2017, she resided in Topsham.
