It’s 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. Her studies focused on creative writing and literary analysis throughout high school and university, 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 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 education. Strapped for cash, she bypassed the idea of attending film school and took up studying on her own. Zae managed a move to New Orleans in late 2011 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. She balances her on-set time with that of her freelance-, novel-, and screenplay writing.
Her latest endeavours involve travelling around to wherever work calls her, continuing to grow as a filmmaker and network across the country. Between gigs, she’s hard at work revising young adult and fantasy novels Between The Lines and Bryngodya: The Crystal Keepers, with every full intent of finding publishers for both by 2014.
