Founder / Writer / Game Designer

Shoshana Kessock

Shoshana Kessock came up with the name Phoenix Outlaw Productions when she was sixteen by combining her favorite mythical creature and one of her favorite pro wrestling tag-teams. She later brought that name to the company she founded with Josh Harrison to remind herself that some dreams never die. They just need to rise from the ashes to become even cooler.

Shoshana is a writer, game designer and scholar who has devoted her career to storytelling in many forms. She is the author of such games as Dangers Untold, SERVICE, Keeping The Candles Lit, The Last Ten Minutes, and more. Since starting as a freelancer in the games world she's written on over a dozen projects for such companies as Evil Hat Productions, Eschaton Media, Ginger Goat Games, Magpie Games, Galileo Games, Onyx Path and more. She's currently employed full-time as a writer for John Wick Presents on the 7th Sea roleplaying game line. 

Together with Josh Harrison, she's co-authored several projects, including the upcoming New Dorado: Tales of the Wild City for Eschaton Media, and serves as co-director of the Dresden Lives: Empire State Chronicles LARP events in the New York/New Jersey area.

When she isn't designing games, Shoshana writes fiction, comic books, screenplays and worked on digital games. She is also an academic scholar, having graduated the NYU Game Center with an MFA in Game Design. She publishes papers on topics like safe spaces, cultural appropriation, death and mental health in games. She also serves as a media critic for such blog sites as Tor.com, The Geek Initiative, and the Mary Sue. More of her work and her ongoing blog musings can be found on her website or she can be found on Twitter @ShoshanaKessock.
