ing and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole dayâ€™s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. Itâ€™s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school. Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading. A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind. A.D. Ellisâ€™ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.
