Career[edit]

Before becoming a full-time writer, Brozek was a software QA engineer working on a wide range of projects, including video games.[2][3] Brozek co-chaired one of the first Babylon 5 science fiction conventions (StarQuest '95), was a sidekick character in the web comic, Casey and Andy, by Andy Weir[4] and is listed as a 200-point GURPS character.[5]

Brozek began her professional writing career in 2004. She was the editor-in-chief of the semiprozine, The Edge of Propinquity,[6] a webzine that published for six years, and worked as an assistant editor, sounding board and convention volunteer for the Apex Book Company.[7] Brozek is now the creative director of Apocalypse Ink Productions and a member of Broad Universe, the Horror Writers Association, and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).
