Kelly Pawlik

Kelly Pawlik gave into her husband’s requests to try gaming after their second child was born in 2012, and she hasn’t looked back. Weekend gaming sessions have become a thing to look forward to once the rugrats are in bed (though more than a few evenings have been spent playing child-suitable adventures with the little ones). Kelly enjoys the role-playing aspect of gaming more than combat, and delights in world creation.

Kelly PawlikIn 2015, Kelly and Ken started Dire Rugrat Publishing and began working on the self-published Tangible Taverns.  In 2016 Kelly Pawlik started producing work for other publishing companies, including Flaming Crab Games, Playground Adventures, and more. A busy mother of three young children juggling a work-from-home day job, Kelly fits in RPG writing when she can.
