Hi! I’m Elizabeth Corrigan, author of several science fiction and fantasy books, including the Earthbound Angels series, the Valeriel Investigations series, and the Transients series. Creating stories has always been a passion of mine, whether it was playing pretend as a child, making up stories in my head during bouts of insomnia, or actually taking the time to write and edit my novels.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology from Dickinson College, and a Master of Arts in Social Psychology from the Ohio State University. I have spent the past 14 years working as a data analyst in the healthcare industry, the past 9 of which have been working to improve behavioral health outcomes, first in the Army, and then in Baltimore City. 

In my spare time, I play a lot of games, primarily tabletop role-playing games and cooperative card games. I drink too much Coke Zero and am pathologically afraid of bees.

I live in Towson, MD, with two cats.

FAQ

 

Where do you get your ideas?

Oh, so many places. Probably my most common source is my dreams. I’m fortunate to have surprisingly narrative dreams that I remember when I wake up, which results in things like Arachne’s Web. Sometimes I’ll have a concept I want to explore, like a supernatural detective story in a fictional 1950s world like Catching a Man. My most popular series, Earthbound Angels, basically started out as Supernatural fanfic. 

How many books will be in each of your series?

The easiest answer to that question is for Valeriel Investigations, which will have 8 books in the series. Transients will have 3 books, with an additional novel or novella explaining how all the transients first met. As for Earthbound Angels… Well, the current story arc will be completed after 7 books, but I have other ideas for novels after that!

How do you refer to your novels when discussing them among friends?

The Earthbound Angels books generally get referred to by shortened versions of the actual titles: Oracle, Chaos, Archangel.
The Valeriel Investigations books are called Kadin or Kadin Stone, followed by the appropriate number. For example, I am currently working on Kadin 3.
Transients I refer to as Space Trains.

What do you do when you’re not writing?

By day, I work as a data analyst for a non-profit that makes sure Baltimore City residents have access to behavioral health care.

My non-writing spare time primarily consists of tabletop gaming, primarily the Pathfinder Role-Playing Game and the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.

Who designs your covers?

Glendon Haddix at Streetlight Graphics (https://www.streetlightgraphics.com/).
I cannot recommend him enough.

Which of your cover is your favorite?

Hellbound Humans. I just adore it.

Which of your books is your favorite?

Generally, whichever one I put out most recently.
So at the moment, Arachne’s Web.

Which of your characters is your favorite?

I love most of my characters so much, but my absolute favorite is Ralvin DeValeriel from the Valeriel Investigations series. I can’t even really say why. Something about his calm, put-togetherness in combination with his inability to actually solve his own problems in a functional way speaks to me.
