Ellen lives in a small town in New England, between the Atlantic Ocean and the White Mountains. She lives with her husband,, two sons, and one very spoiled puppy princess. Ellen writes in the early morning hours before she teaches language arts to middle schoolers. When she's not writing or teaching, you can find her spending time with her family, gardening with her puppy and chickens, or headed to the beach. She loves summer and flip-flops, running on a dirt country road, and a sweet love song. All of her stories are clean romances where families are close, neighbors are nosy, and the couples are destined for each other.
