Keena Roberts will be co-mentoring Adult SFF in PitchWars with her 2019 mentee Molly Steen. She has a background in both creative non-fiction and SFF and has worked for several years as a developmental editor and book coach for Adult SFF. Her work has appeared in the SFF magazine Prismatica and she’s a contributor to the upcoming SFF anthology DON’T TOUCH THAT. More generally, her next fantasy book is currently with beta readers and she has the (ambitious) goal of having a draft of her next book done by the end of the year. She lives outside New York in the mountains with her wife, daughter, and several pets and enjoys reading by campfires, wherever she can find them.
