I am honored to have been interviewed by Carl Slaughter for File 770, a fanzine about the news of sci-fi fandom. Carl’s questions were detailed and thoughtful, and it was a pleasure to work with him and to be featured on the site. The interview, entitled “Kelli Fitzpatrick, Breakthrough Author,” looks at my current publications, my works in progress, as well as my interest in the sci-fi world.
Here’s a story game called “Without Borders” I wrote and coded a couple years ago about a doctor who becomes an astronaut rather unwillingly. “Story game” means that it is a choose-your-own-adventure style story where you play as a character and have choices and different possible endings.
There’s a link at the end of the game to give me feedback on what you thought, as well as links to get you started creating games of your own if you are so inclined.

Just received the confirmation email that I’ve been accepted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America as an Associate Member! SFWA is an organization for published authors and industry professionals in the scifi/spec fiction world. I could not be more proud to join the ranks of such an amazing group of writers and look forward to meeting many more of them.
The title and beginning of the article written by Rich Schepis for Women at Warp.
Writer and journalist Rich Schepis interviewed me about my recent Strange New Worlds story “The Sunwalkers.” His full article, “Teacher Takes Lessons from Star Trek to Enter new Frontier,” discusses the impact Star Trek has had on both my writing and teaching, and is published on the Women at Warp website.
Huge thanks to Rich for his adept communication and professionalism, and to Women at Warp for celebrating women in Star Trek and scifi everywhere.
