Kelly Pawlik

Kelly Pawlik gave into her husband’s requests to play TTRPGs after their second child was born in 2012, and hasn’t looked back. Since then she has played nearly a dozen different systems and prefers games that focus on romance, drama, and adventure; she’s an avid proponent of duet gaming. She is co-owner of Dire Rugrat Publishing, a micro publisher focusing on Fifth Edition D&D supplements. In addition to self-publishing and writing for Kobold Press, Kelly has worked for several indie RPG publishing companies over the years.  Her childhood dream was to be a writer, and more recently, Kelly has begun to branch out into fiction with her Legends of The Link novellas. She loves RPGs because they can make any dream a reality. Kelly can find a Taylor Swift song that fits any game session.
