Roz Young grew up in Fort McMurray, Alberta trying to decide if she would rather be a scientist, writer, or filmmaker. She pursued her love of science first. After completing her M.Sc., Roz worked and published in microbiology before attending the Vancouver Film School for screenwriting. During her time at VFS, she collaborated with students from other departments to co-write a video game trailer, two episodes of a science fiction webseries, a neo-noir android detective comic, and a steampunk, action/adventure short film. Roz created and wrote pilot episodes for a ghost hunting horror webseries and an original science fiction TV comedy.
Roz is a staff writer for Sequential Tart, an online magazine devoted to comics and pop culture, which is primarily written and published by women. She is inspired by screenwriters like Stephen Moffat, Edgar Wright, Fran Walsh, and Joss Whedon. Her favourite genres are science fiction, horror, and fantasy.
