Ellen lives in the land of rain and more rain, also known as Southwest Washington. She spends most of her days having a lot of intense feelings about fictional people, and then turning around and writing about them until her fingers want to fall off. She often jokes that she has too much blood in her coffee stream, and has been known to sacrifice sleep for midnight releases -- of books and movies.
She believes in being kind and writing the stories you want to read in the world, and she often discusses plot ideas with her lazy cat, who gives very good feedback on a regular basis.
She can't remember a time that she wasn't writing stories, but the first time she started sharing them was when she was nine years old - a time she remembers vividly, because she joined an online writer's community and made friends there that she has to this day.
As an open and proud queer woman, much of Ellen's fiction focuses on queer characters and telling stories that include them, spotlight their life experiences, and celebrate them for the beautiful people they are.
Contemporary Romance. A story about a lifelong love and coming out to family and friends, and how sometimes you have to risk the jump even if you don't know if you're going to get caught.

He hadn’t come from money and fame like most of his friends, and he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t secretly smug to have been invited to the upcoming celebrity wedding.
