Get to Know Ellen...

Birthdate?  January 11
When did you start writing? In elementary school.
When and what and where did you first get published? Prior to attending Odyssey in 2006, I had sold non-fiction articles and had some fiction in non-paying markets. My first professional sale was the flash piece, “The Mouths,” in 2009 to a now-defunct magazine called Hypersonic Tales. The story was later sold to Lightspeed Magazine for their special “Women Destroy Science Fiction” issue.
What themes do you like to write about? I am fascinated by the subject of Otherness and how that can be explored in science fiction and fantasy.
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? My favorite books as a child were The Lord of the Rings and Watership
Down. I still love both of these for the beautiful worldbuilding and skillful use of language. As an adult I have been influenced by the works of Octavia Butler and Sheri Tepper, because of their fascinating exploration of what it means to be human. I hope that all of this comes out in my writing. I love to build worlds, and then use them to consider difficult questions, such as, can humans and nature ultimately coexist? What happens if we stop making and appreciating art? How do we care for the vulnerable among us?
