Elizabeth Kaye Daugherty

Welcome to my writing website and porfolio!

Elizabeth Kaye Daugherty, or EKD for short, is a hard-working student of creative writing who loves a good story, cats, and dragons. She is an INFJ Aquarius, the oldest child of three, and her favorite animal is a whale shark.

She was born in Pensacola, Florida, and lived there during her childhood and in Crestview, Florida, during her adolescence and early adulthood. She moved to Brookings, South Dakota, in search of work and a fresh start with her cat named Shark. While living and working there, she began her studies of Creative Writing through Full Sail University’s online program, and attained her BFA in Creative Writing in August 2020.

Though she has always loved to write fiction and fantasy, she found a love of creative nonfiction during her studies and dabbles with the art in blog form.

Her primary focus is still creative fiction, currently in the first draft stage of her first novel to submit for publishing, with a focus on fantasy for young adults and new adults with diverse characters and powerful core messages. She plans to start a YouTube channel and offer vocal talent work in the future.

She is a founding member of the South Dakota Writes community, a non-profit organization. You can learn more about them here.

Shark and EKD thank you for visiting!
