About Linda Zayas-Palmer

Hi! I'm Paizo's Digital Adventures Development Manager. This means that I do secondary development passes on digital adventures like scenarios, as well as managerial tasks for digital adventures team.
Outside of my day job, I'm a freelance author for Pathfinder and Starfinder. While my love of leshys has become a bit of a calling card (best seen in products like the leshy ancestry for Pathfinder Second Edition, the leshy heritages for Botanical Bestiary, and the Fistful of Flowers Free RPG day adventure [cowritten with the amazing Eleanor Ferron]), I write other things too. My largest projects are Fires of the Haunted City, the fourth volume of Paizo's Age of Ashes adventure path, and Battle at Barnacle Bay, the third part of Battlezoo's Jewel of the Indigo Isles adventure path. I enjoy basically every aspect of writing for RPGs, from designing new rules and shaping lore to writing adventures.
Twice a week, I stream on twitch as Arcane Mark, together with Mark Seifter. We discuss a variety of Pathfinder-related topics, from interviewing Paizo staff to running workshops to make things like NPCs and magic items to giving GM advice to giving biased reviews of Paizo products. Sometimes we take a break from Pathfinder to stream a video game as well.
I've been playing tabletop RPGs since 2008, and primarily Pathfinder since 2010. I like other tabletops as well, such as FATE and Mouseguard, as well as many video games and board games. Outside of gaming, I'm also a huge math nerd who would like to get back to tutoring someday if I can find the time. I also enjoy puzzles, reading, singing, and watching TV.
