Alex Brown is a Showrunner’s Assistant by day and a YA Horror Comedy (and, occasionally, Rom Com) writer by night. She’s no stranger to horror, as she’s worked on Supernatural and Netflix’s upcoming Resident Evil live-action adaptation. She lives in LA and spends her free time singing showtunes to her cat, who isn’t terribly thrilled about it. Alex is the co-creator of The Bridge, a narrative fiction podcast that’s had over 1,000,000 downloads to date! She was previously a mentor for two rounds of Author Mentor Match and is so stoked to be a Pitch Wars co-mentor for the first time! Alex will have a short story published in Tori Bovalino’s THE GATHERING DARK: AN ANTHOLOGY OF FOLK HORROR, which is coming out in Fall 2022!
