About the Artist

I am a novelist who writes some short fiction. My goal is to make each piece better than the last.

I believe in the power of the stories we tell ourselves and what we could know if we paid better attention.

My fiction follows generations of sometimes hard-bitten characters in the allegorical town Raventon. Run Plant Fly, my first novel, describes the first virtual reality theme park as it forever alters the fabric of this community.

I am currently writing its prequel, As Though There Were No Tomorrow, about a woman scientist who worked at Hanford during the Manhattan Project.

Ellie also received a 2000 GAP.
