Ellen Read
BIOGRAPHY

Ellen Read was born in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She has always enjoyed reading, even from a young age. Books took her into a world of wonder and enjoyment that the real world could never quite provide. She loves to read fiction, non-fiction, poetry. She particularly loves history and stories of ancient myths and legends. Authors such as Agatha Christie, Jane Austen, Edgar Allan Poe, and Victoria Holt, the latter of whom wrote gothic mystery/romances, have influenced her own work.

In her childhood, Ellen always made up stories. At first, she wrote poetry and short stories, and then wrote her first novel at 18. When Ellen moved towns, she wrote a novella, Love The Gift, while moving, which she self-published. Then she started The Dragon Sleeps, the first book in The Thornton Mysteries Series. It was released in November 2019. Book 2 will shortly follow.

Ellen’s other passion is photography. She loves to photograph flowers, landscapes and architecture. Her website features many of her photos.

      • Engaging characters are one of the most important elements of good writing. My Thornton Mysteries series is historical, so good research is important. Keep the story at a good pace, short chapters. Write from the heart.

      • I write at the same time every day. I believe having a routine helps. I make certain I have short but regular breaks to stretch my legs, walk around. It's good to get some fresh air. It's important to take care of yourself. Another thing is, I never sit at stare at my computer screen and not know what to write. If that happens, it's best to get up and away from the computer. Clear the head. The words will then flow.
