Liz Craft & Sarah Fain are Screenwriters and Creators.

Liz Craft & Sarah Fain's credits include Angel, The Shield, Women’s Murder Club, The Vampire Diaries, Lie To Me, and The Fix. They wrote their first piece together when they were fifteen — an article on Kansas City delis for their high school newspaper. Liz attended Columbia University in New York and went on to work as an editor of young adult books, including Sweet Valley High. Meanwhile, Sarah attended Williams College then joined Teach For America, where she taught high school English and Creative Writing in rural North Carolina.

After a night of drinking beer during a visit home, Liz and Sarah decided to move to California together. They rented a tiny beach house and dove head first into their writing partnership. Since then they have written for numerous television shows including the final two seasons of Angel, the Emmy Award-winning show The Shield, Women’s Murder Club (which they created), The Vampire Diaries, and Lie To Me. Most recently, Liz and Sarah created the ABC show The Fix with former Los Angeles prosecutor Marcia Clark. They’ve co-written two Young Adult novels, Bass Ackwards & Belly Up and Footfree & Fancyloose.

Liz and Sarah cohost the hugely popular weekly podcast Happier In Hollywood, which is about how to survive the war of attrition that is life in Los Angeles. It was featured in Apple’s New & Noteworthy and has over four million downloads.
