About the Artist

Ellie B. Belew is a novelist who writes some short fiction. Her goal is to make each piece better than the last. She believes in the power of the stories we tell ourselves and what we could know if we paid better attention. Her fiction follows generations of sometimes hard-bitten characters in the allegorical town Raventon. Run Plant Fly, her first novel, describes the first virtual reality theme park as it forever alters the fabric of this community. She is 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 Award.
