Kellie Doherty is a queer science fiction and fantasy author who enjoys making her (hella queer) characters go through fiery brimstone and back.
What I bring
This expo is the perfect place to explore how to create science fiction and fantasy villains with understandable motivations, so I’ll be joining two panels to do just that. I’ll also chat about world-building in science fiction and fantasy stories, queer representation, and other writing topics!
Who I am
Kellie Doherty is a queer author living in Alaska. When she noticed there wasn’t much positive queer representation in the science fiction and fantasy realms, she decided to create her own! Kellie’s work has been published in Image OutWrite 2019, Astral Waters Review, Life (as it) Happens, and Impact, among others. Her sci-fi duology—Finding Hekate and Losing Hold—came out in 2016 and 2017 from Desert Palm Press. She’s working on a five-book fantasy series. Sunkissed Feathers & Severed Ties (2019, Desert Palm Press) won a 2019 Rainbow Award. Curling Vines & Crimson Trades launched on November 30, 2020.
