Zaelyna Beck is a Scifi/Fantasy and Young Adult writer. Her imagination was forged by her rural Connecticut upbringing, where she explored the back woods and adopted the library as her second home. She often writes about offbeat characters in formed-family dynamics, with a portfolio spanning from television and features, to novels, short-form prose, and video games, and frequently blends fantasy, scifi, or other speculative elements. Her 1hr supernatural pilot AWAKENING placed as a Semifinalist with WeScreenplay Diverse Voices. Zae is currently developing new projects while seeking representation and staffing opportunities.
Zae earned her Bachelor’s from Southern CT State studying writing, psychology, and music. After graduation, she jumped aboard several reality, commercial, and corporate productions as she trekked across the U.S. She has published articles on local entertainment to the online platform Examiner.com and freelanced as a ghostwriter and manuscript editor, in addition to crewing on a number of independent short films.
Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles, Zae secured a position as an Office PA in scripted television. She worked her way up the assistant ladder on hit shows for ABC, Freeform, and Disney+, leading to her most recent experience as Writers’ Assistant for a prominent upcoming scifi series.
In her spare time, Zae enjoys training and hiking with her muscle-mutt Kaia. She’s also studying the art of bonsai trees, and learning to ride an electric unicycle.
