In 1985 Ellie complemented a technical education, with a Bachelor of Arts degree, admitting 'qualifications only became important to me once I was adult. It would have been so much easier had I studied when I was at the age when my brain didn't seize up so readily, but I guess I was young and bolshie and thought there were more exciting things to do.'
When jobs around the home allow, Ellie's time is divided between writing, attempting to play 8-ball pool, and socializing. Like most authors, Ellie nurtured a desire for writing from an early age, and like most, became a clandestine scribbler.
In 1994, Ellie went public when a string of magazine stories were accepted. Stories from Ellie have been published regularly ever since, been recorded by 'Talking Newspapers' for distribution to the visually impaired, have featured in periodicals, anthologies, summer specials, international newspapers, been broadcast on prime-time radio, and published in several international writing competitions, at times fighting off entrants from 27 countries.
An audio collection of short stories has been released, recorded by radio personality, Pauline McGough.
A Brit, abroad, Ellie now lives on the outskirts of Jalón, Spain, overlooking vineyards, villages and olive groves.
