About

I’m Brittany Krueger, known as Brit or BEKs to my family and close friends. I’m a writer, an athlete, and have a love for fantasy and science fiction. That love for fantasy and science fiction undoubtably came from watching “Stargate SG-1,” “Babylon 5,” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and having my mother read fantasy books to my brother and I every night growing up.

This blog is focused on writing. I hope to help writers learn about the writing process and provide support for them while they learn. I’ll write about the pitfalls and ecstatic moments of writing, reading with an editorial eye, the publishing world, and how to survive it all without being utterly overwhelmed. Occasionally, there’ll be a post about ghouls or goblins, or something completely different.

In a typical week, I’ll post one or two times. To not miss my new posts, subscribe to my blog. You can also follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

My Biography

I have a M.A. in Writing from Johns Hopkins University and a B.A. in Clinical Psychology with a minor in English from Washington College.  I am a member of the honor societies PSI CHI and PHI BETA KAPPA. I’ve presented multiple psychological studies at the Eastern Psychological Association Conference, graduated magna cum laude, and won the Psychology Department Award.

Currently, I work as a research study coordinator at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. I work in pediatrics, and adore each one of those kiddos, especially because they forgive every endured prick and poke in the name of health.

When I’m not writing or working, I compete in bike centuries, obstacle course challenges (Tough Mudder, Spartan, etc.), and watch marathons of “Doctor Who” and anything by Joss Whedon. I volunteer at The Humane Society, am a vegan, have a German Shepherd and two cats: a Bengal and a Russian Blue, and would love to have Doctor Who sweep me away in his TARDIS, or have a lightsaber battle with Luke Skywalker.

    Love your website, blog, and writing! I’m going to check out a few of the books on your 2017 “to read” list. You were asking about favorite books and mentioned some of yours from childhood. It reminded me of a series I read to Matt many moons ago, the first of which was called Bunnicula (about a bunny with markings like a vampire). They were written from the perspective of the family dogs and the language was slightly “old fashioned,” or maybe just more classic and not as dumbed down as other children’s books. So fun to read!
