Elena Pedigo Clark received her BA in International Studies from UNC-Charlotte, her MA in Russian Translation from Columbia University, and her Ph.D. in Slavic Languages and Literatures from UNC-Chapel Hill.

When she’s not teaching or writing, she’s probably working in her garden or playing with her menagerie of furry pets!
