Ellie Skinner


Ellie Skinner grew up in England, in a small and quiet village. She moved to Australia at the age of fourteen and, surrounded by strangers, she became an avid reader. She then started devouring one book after another, sometimes reading two to three books a day (during the weekends). It wasn't until she hurt her wrist, however, that she began to write. Unable to draw or play the guitar anymore, she turned to writing as final attempt to express herself both emotionally and creatively. Here, she became interested in psychological thrillers.
Studying in university, with a Major in Writing and a minor in Editing and Publication, she aims to become an editor one day as well as write on the side. She is currently working on a novel, which she works on in her spare time, and, one day, hopes to publish the piece.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing a year after I hurt my wrist… it was a difficult time for me. I used to draw and play the guitar, but it eventually became too painful. Unable to express myself, I turned to my computer and began typing out what I couldn't draw. Jotting these ideas down helped me some and, eventually, they became stories. To this day, I still draw some, but now I much prefer writing.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Hmm, perhaps the creation and development of my characters, especially their imperfections. I tend to love them more than people in real life.
