About Me / Contact

Hi there!

If you hadn't guessed already from the massive letters on top of this page, my name is Ellie Firestone. I've been writing since I could physically hold a pen. Actually, that's a lie -- back before I could hold a pen, I dictated stories to my mom and made her write them down for me. Sorry, Mom.

My stories tend to be weird speculative fiction, usually with some kind of big twist at the end. If there's one thing I love more than making characters suffer, it's making readers go, "Whaaaaaaat?"

On the non-writing side of things, I love to swim, drink tea, and (duh) read.

Some random facts about me:

  • I'm half English and half American. 
  • My favorite word is “hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia”, because it means a fear of long words and I find that very funny. 
  • I can juggle.  
  • My favorite book is Every Day by David Levithan (both the book and the movie made me cry).
  • My favorite movie is Inception. Dreams and gadgets and mind-bending sci-fi concepts? Yes PLEASE.
  • I have two English Toy Terriers, named Bonnie and Banksy. And they're insanely cute.

You can find me on social media at all of these places:

Alternatively, there's a contact form at the bottom of this page.

Shameless plug: I also do freelance editing over at Fireproof Editing. Turns out, I love ripping books to shreds like an editorial harpy.


  1. Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliaphobia is also one of my favourite words. I'm also rather fond of ineffable. I like Divergent too, but my favourite is Legend by Marie Lu. Have you read that?

    1. Ineffable is a great word! I haven't read Legend yet, but it's on my TBR.

  2. popped over here after seeing your awesome twitter thread! I love the movie Inception <3 <3 <3 and YES please do read Legend! It's my all-time favorite series!
