Ellen grew up in the area and then attended SUNY Oneonta. She loves crafting, hanging out with animals, and exploring the outdoors. She had trouble reading at first, due to ADHD and dyslexia, but once she found a book she liked, she was rarely seen without a book. She would often get in trouble, in class, because she would be reading instead of paying attention. She was definitely also the one who read the class book, all in one go, at home. She loves books. Her favorite genres include fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and thrillers.
