My name is Ellen Best, I live in East Anglia Suffolk, in the UK. With my wonderful husband John and the lovely Lilly, our Romanian rescue dog. I have been writing since I could read. I began with poetry and had my first poem published at twelve in a magazine under a pen name. But in 2012 I took early retirement to improve my craft and concentrate on writing. I took part in NaNoWriMo in 2014 and successfully completed the challenge. 2015 saw my flash printed in Canadian magazine a long story short. Flash fiction, gave me my first competition success as I claimed first prize at the UK blog award story in 2017, 2018 my first horror story was printed in an Anthology Dark Visions 2019 The association of retired police Officers included a story by me in a pamphlet to celebrate their centenary. 2019 saw the inclusion of a psychological thriller of mine between the pages of another Anthology Nightmareland. 2020 has been a strange year and I have been working on my debut novel which fingers crossed will be picked up by an agent and publishing house very soon. It is a contemporary historic novel set in the 1970s. A story of Shame, as 10yr old Mary is ripped from her parents, A tale of pain and fear ensues as they fight to get her back. All because of an anonymous letter. The Fourth Anthology is ready to pre-order on Amazon called Spellbound a Horror Anthology. By Dan Alatorre and nineteen other Authors. I am proud to have a place between the pages of this book.Read more Read less
