Ellen Metter


After trying her hand at radio announcing, stand-up comedy, and department store sales, Metter found a career “soul mate” in librarianship. She is a research librarian on the Auraria campus in Denver, Colorado, home to three schools of higher education: the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and Community College of Denver. In 2011, she received the Excellence in Librarianship Award from the University of Colorado Denver.

Metter holds an MA in Information Studies from Philadelphia’s Drexel University and a BA in Theatre from Rutgers University. She’s the author of two books from Writer’s Digest Books, including Facts in a Flash. Along with artist Loretta Gomez, Metter self-published Cheerfully Childless, the first humor book on the topic of choosing to be childfree. Born in New Jersey, Metter now lives in Colorado with her partner Mark and minimum of one cat also always in residence.
