Elizabeth Einspanier is an author of cross-genre speculative fiction (and troper) with a handful of publication credits under her belt. Her inspirations are as diverse as Stephen King, Terry Pratchett, and Jonathan Coulton, and she delights in playing around with narrative tropes and taking old stories and conventions in new directions.
Published Works with their own TV Tropes pages:Short Stories
Tropes that apply to her work:
- Conversational Troping: A number of her blog posts explore tropes by name, particularly Author Appeal, Attention Deficit Creator Disorder, and Give Geeks a Chance.
- Our Monsters Are Different: She tends to get down to the (often gritty) roots of classical monsters.
- Your Vampires Suck: If "The Dangers of Literature" is any indication, she has a particular loathing for the "paranormal romance" vampire. An interview in "The Writer's Lens" was even entitled "My Vampires Don't Sparkle".
