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. Her one-hour supernatural pilot AWAKENING was a 2021 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, Zae did a brief stint writing articles and press releases for several online platforms, including Demand Media (eHow) and Examiner.com (AXS), before jumping aboard several reality, commercial, and corporate productions across the U.S. She’s 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 adventuring with her muscle-mutt Kaia. She’s also studying bonsai tree art and learning to ride an electric unicycle.
