Ellian grew up on an old but cheerful sailing boat, traveling the world with her family. She got to soak up the colourful ways of the world and sometimes that sneaks into her writing. Since 2014 she has called Cumberland her home and has opened up a local children’s store: Little Village Store. You can find her there most days, often accompanied by her trusty assistant (and daughter) Lyla. Writing has long been a passion for Ellian but she is only just venturing back into putting her pieces out into the world. Long may it continue.
