Elizabeth Kaye Daugherty

Welcome to my writing website and portfolio!

Elizabeth Kaye Daugherty, or EKD for short, is a writer of fantasy and fiction for all ages. She currently works at Activision. She is an INFJ Aquarius, the oldest child of three, and her favorite animal is the 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 education.

From there, she moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to work as a QA game tester for Activision and officially merged into the field of making video games.

She was 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!
