Hey, I’m Ellen, or Elle!
I’m 24, from sunny Brisbane, Australia. I currently live in Berlin, Germany. By day I work at a cool tech company in the heart of Berlin, and by night I write young adult fiction.
I also love travelling, which is a big reason I moved to Berlin. I previously lived in London for two years, where my love for travel emerged. When my UK visa expired, I knew I didn’t want to leave Europe just yet! So I found an amazing job in Berlin, and completely fell in love with the city.
As you can imagine, I’m a big reader. A few of my favourite authors are Melina Marchetta, J.K. Rowling and Markus Zusak. I also love Game of Thrones and a whole bunch of other great TV shows.
My aims for this blog:
- To keep an updated journal of my life, with more creativity and curation than a private diary. Basically, I want to be able to look back on all my adventures, but I find writing a diary a bit boring!
- To practice and improve my writing and photography, and experiment with new mediums. Blogging is a great way to express myself without feeling too shackled – it’s my blog, so I can do what I want!
- To connect with other writers and like-minded bloggers. I know there’s a bunch of cool people in the interwebs, and I think collaboration for writers, artists and creatives is super important!
Thanks for taking the time to read about me!
