about ella

I’ve been a writer since age 9, when a friend gave me my very first journal. I started blogging in 1998—way before it was called “blogging.”

my online writing has had many homes, starting with my first website, then to livejournal, blogger, facebook (I know, I know), and finally, here.

Regardless of where my online writing lives, it’s typically of a deeply personal nature. I’ve blogged about loss, divorce, grief, healing, personal growth, and of course—writing and my passion for helping people find and hone their writing voice.

Welcome. I hope you enjoy what you find here.
