Kelley Hays-Gilpin I was born in 1960 in a Detroit suburb, daughter of a research chemist and a teacher. Dad was an avocational archaeologist who collected historic pueblo pottery (purchased from the potters, didn't dig 'em up). I grew up as one of those obnoxious children that volunteers bring with them to archaeological projects--I got the opportunity to learn field methods quite young, but also burned out on digging quite young and perhaps that's why I do ceramic analysis and method and theory stuff now. I moved to Arizona in 1983, finally finished my PhD in 1992, married an Oklahoman, also an archaeologist, no offspring or pets. I drive a red Chevy 4x4 pickup truck with dents in it from running into tree stumps and parking lot guardrails. I enjoy gardening and reading fiction of the sort by mostly English women writers, especially Jane Austen, Barbara Pym, and Angela Thirkell--the sorts of novels in which nothing much happens but there are a lot of relationships.
