Who is dragonfly?

Dragonfly is the nickname of author, designer, and illustrator, Ana Maria Selvaggio. “Writing has been as big a part of my life as my drawing for as long as I can remember. I love words and, even moreso, opportunities to combine them with visual elements.”

Having worked in and around the publishing industry since the mid 90s, Selvaggio has worked with independent authors for the past 20 years. Her love of the written word translated early on into various types of poetry and nonfiction articles prior to jumping headlong into short stories and longer works of fiction. Selvaggio’s arsenal now includes novel-length fiction and screenwriting.

In her early 40s, Selvaggio went back to school for her Masters in Creative Writing, specializing in screenwriting for film, gaming, animation, and television. “I completed a script for my thesis and being able to hold it in my hands…my world changed.” Selvaggio spent the first half of 2019 converting that script, Stalemate, into a novel and plans to revise the script to match before registering it with the Writers Guild. She won’t stop there, though. Selvaggio plans to develop Stalemate into an augmented reality game for mobile technology.
