Lucy Leitner is the author of the horror-comedy novels Working Stiffs (2012) and 𝗢𝗨𝗧𝗥𝗔𝗚𝗘: 𝗟𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗟 𝟭𝟬 (2021). From Arlington, Virginia (where jokes say people are dying to go), she lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (where movies say the dead live). She’s been making up scary stories since age 10, when she frightened her little sister out of sharing a room. After earning a master’s in journalism in 2010, she won an award for a piece in Justice Magazine and promptly retired from journalism. Now she’s the writer, spokesperson, and sometime hand model for a global vitamin company that tends to post more zombie content on social media than its competitors…When not scaring customers into taking their vitamins, she’s working on her next horror novel.
