Ellie Philpott grew up in Kent, before she spent a number of years travelling around the world for various employers, including a Dutch human rights agency. Her most vivid memories of her work include being held up at gun point in southern Mexico, spending time trapped in the fighting in the West Bank during the second Intifada and dodging the authorities in Vietnam. Her life is a bit tamer now and involves writing and managing the PR for a French company. Ellie lives in Kent once again, with her husband and Eric the puppy, Fudge and Toffee the call ducks, four chickens and several hundred thousand bees spread across four hives. She is also the author of My Enemy My Friend, a non-fiction book describing her encounters with Palestinians and Israelis involved in various reconciliation projects.
