Luke Elliott was born and raised in the suburbs of central Florida. In his late twenties, he travelled across the country with his wife and two dogs to live in Portland, Oregon, where he fell in love with the city and a region with natural beauty as magical 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. Now he writes mostly science fiction, fantasy, and horror, but will go wherever inspiration leads. In August of 2017, he launched the Ink to Film podcast with a filmmaker co-host, where he discusses books and their film adaptations from a writer’s point of view. In between writing and podcasting, he collects quality single malts and is always happy to pour a dram for company.
