Luke Elliott was born in suburban central Florida in the 1980s. By age twelve, his friend group voted him full-time dungeon master, so he learned quickly how to write adventures that could entertain older and cooler kids. In his late twenties, he travelled 3000 miles across the country with his wife and two dogs to live in Portland, Oregon, a wonderful city in a region with natural splendor as awe-inspiring as any fantasy world. He has a B.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Florida where he studied and wrote both literature and poetry, and earned a MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. He writes mostly science fiction, fantasy, and horror, but will go wherever the inspiration takes him. In August of 2017, he started and co-hosts the "Ink to Film" podcast, where he discusses books and their film adaptations. In between writing, podcasting, and occasional gaming, he collects and reviews quality single malts and is always happy to pour a dram for company.
