About the Creator

liz kelly

Liz Kelly is a self-described “story wonk” with a lifelong love of narrative, both on the page and on the screen. She spent her childhood alternating between books and video games, with brief breaks for movies and television. Her passion for stories of all shapes led her to earn a B.A. in English Writing from the University of Pittsburgh. Years later, her passion for paying the bills led her to earn an M.B.A. from DePaul University. 

After ten years of grinding rank on the corporate ladder, Liz settled into a CFO position at a growing video game publisher, which kept her engaged with the latest developments in the industry. Unfortunately, the work left her with little time to indulge her interest in storytelling, and so she left finance behind to throw herself into writing full-time. Most recently, she helped develop and write the story for Decarnation, a story-driven retro horror game set in 1980s Paris. 

Liz currently lives with her husband and her dogs in California, where she divides her writing time between speculative fiction and content for Cutscene University. When she isn’t wrestling a keyboard or a controller, she can be found plucking away at her guitar or researching laughably obscure gemstones.
