Raff Ellis, a former computer industry business executive, whose writing credits include many short stories, magazine articles, columns, essays and three books.
Ellis' first full length book, Kisses from a Distance, published in 2007 by Cune Press, Seattle, WA, was nominated for a National Book Award and won the prize for adult non-fiction given by the AANM of Dearborn, MI.
His second work, Dam Foolishness, also published by Cune Press in 2011, is a memoir about growing up in small town America. This work has often been greeted with accolades for Mr. Ellis' storytelling ability.
Ellis' most recent effort, The Bishop's Curse, (Prolix Press LLC, 2012), was the culmination of over twenty years of sporadically researching and collecting information about the 150 year-old story he first heard as a youth growing up in Carthage, New York. His research took him to libraries and historical centers across northern and central New York as he acquired histories of the period, biographies of church personages, archival letters of the principals involved, and material scanned from microfilms of old newspapers.
Raff Ellis is a graduate of LeMoyne College with a BS in Pure Science and also holds a MBA from the University of Central Florida. He spent his entire business career in the computer industry, rising from the ranks of computer programmer to CEO of an Information Technology R & D firm.
Mr. Ellis, along with his wife Loretta, their dog Abla, and two cats, Lenny and George (apologies to Of Mice and Men), reside in Central Florida.
