Grace Li grew up in a small town in Texas as the eldest daughter of two scientists. She graduated from Duke University, where she studied biology and creative writing, and spent two years as a high school teacher in New York City before moving to Northern California. She is currently in medical school at Stanford University.
Her short fiction has been recognized by the Saturday Evening Post Great American Fiction Contest and Stanford's Paul Kalanithi Writing Award, and is forthcoming from Hyphen Magazine. She likes dessert, stories about diaspora, and prose so good it can be eaten.
Grace is represented by Hannah Fergesen of KT Literary.
