As a child, Ellen dreamed of writing books, acting in plays, and going on adventures. She read books, played in the dirt, and sewed herself costumes as she got older. Adulthood took over for a while and creativity took a backseat. One day she recognized the longing to write again and picked up an old story. 18 months later Child of Shadows was born.
Ellen lives a quiet life in North Carolina with her husband, Brian. She enjoys sewing, spending time with friends, and watching TV.
