About Me

In the beginning there was the word. Simple. But if you add another word to that word, then another... by the end you have a tweet, a blog post, or maybe even a book. That's what I do. Hi, my name's Elle.

I'm the author of KeptLostB-Side and Found (the Arielle Lockley series), plus Geli Voyante's Hot or NotI live in London with my boyfriend fiancĂ©, Olly, and our cat, Compost. (Her story here.) our British shorthair cats, Jasper and Juno. (We sadly said goodbye to Compy in 2021, but she made it to the grand old age of 17.) That's me above in Brooklyn last year. I grew up in Yorkshire where I read a lots of books (obviously), then headed to Scotland for four years to read International Relations and Social Anthropology at the University of St Andrews. That also involved a lot of reading. 

I have to confess, some of the textbooks, journals and articles I had to read weren't *that* entertaining, so in the summer between my third and fourth year, when I should have been working on my dissertation, I turned my hand to writing my first chick lit book. The rest, as they say, is history - it took me several years after graduating to get my first book out there (and it wasn't the one I wrote that summer).

When I'm not writing, I love exploring new places, watching musicals on the West End, and eating yummy food. I'm also a massive fan of The Killers, Disney, giraffes, Audrey Hepburn movies, Scrabble, sunshine and tea. Oh, and reading, of course! You can keep up with my day-to-day life on Instagram.

On my blog though, as well as finding out more about my books on here, you can read all about my London life (that includes playing tourist), my travel adventures, beauty reviews, latest lovesmusical reviews, foodie stuff, as well as other bits and bobs.

Thanks for stopping by! x
