Zack Smedley was born in 1995, in an endearing Southern Maryland county almost no one has heard of. He earned a degree in Chemical Engineering from UMBC in 2017, and he currently works within the field. Additionally, he’s taken several creative- and script-writing courses, and in 2015 he hosted a workshop on the modern publishing industry.

As a member of the LGBT community, his goal is to give a voice to marginalized young adults through gritty, morally complex narratives. He spends his free time building furniture, baking, modifying electronic systems, and managing his obsession with Aaron Sorkin.  You can find him online at and on twitter @zack_smedley.
