It comes as no surprise that Zaelyna Beck chooses to write primarily science fiction/fantasy and young adult stories. They’ve fascinated her for as long as she can remember, and are the cause for her wildly active imagination. Throughout high school/university, her studies focused on creative writing and literary analysis, where she drafted several novels and poems that are currently in the midst of major revisions. Zae began freelancing for online media platforms (eHow, Examiner.com) in 2009, catering to audiences seeking news on upcoming events in local theatre and film entertainment.
Zae finally discovered her desire for a career in film at the too-late-to-turn-back-now end of her undergrad studies. Strapped for cash, she bypassed the idea of attending film school and took up studying on her own. In the process, she moved to New Orleans to take advantage of work as a Production Assistant and immerse herself in everything film-related. While her experiences have piqued interests in many production departments, especially camera and grip, Zae’s true goal is to become a screenwriter for film, television, and video games.
Her latest endeavours involve travelling wherever work calls her, continuing to grow as a filmmaker. She’s hard at work revising young adult and fantasy novels Between The Lines and Bryngodya: The Crystal Keepers, with every intent of finding publishers for both by 2014. Zae is also in the process of revising two feature film screenplays (a drama, and a scifi adaptation) and acting as Script Coordinator/Screenwriter for the upcoming docu-reality series Fan Moguls.
