Ellen Mellor is a trans woman just trying to get on in life. Her mantra is 'So many books, so many comics, so much tea' and it is a hill upon which she is prepared to die. Or at least have an intense discussion about it.
She reads insatiably and will try almost anything although her main interests are in Science Fiction and fantasy. She also reads comic books and has a collection that is really far too large.
Ellen lives in Newcastle upon Tyne. She has one child, an ex-wife, a cat and a library that threatens to collapse in on itself and form a literary black hole.
She is currently accidentally working on her memoir, entitled 'Tea, Comics and Gender: Yet Another F***ing Trans Memoir' and her second short story collection, 'All The Books of Earth'. She hopes they will both be out either late in 2020 or early 2021.
Ellen has written four other books:
The Long Sleep - a science fiction detective novel (978-1535002271)
Down Among the Yla - a fantasy novel (978-1535022514)
Stories From The Corner of The Room - Short Stories. (978-1535042291)
Ghostkin - Contemporary Supernatural Thriller (978-1771154482)
Unfortunately, the first three are currently only available through A*****n, although Ghostkin is available from Ingram Distributors. Over the next few months, the other titles will also become available.
She also had a short story included in the anthology 'Maiden, Mother, Crone: Fantastical Trans Femmes'. (978-1707022052)
