About this author

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by!

I live in country Victoria, Australia, where the sky is very big and the internet is way-hazy. I have four gorgeous sons and a very patient husband - sometimes I garden, and teach at schools, and bottle tomatoes, but mostly I write and read like a mad-thing.

Every Breath, a YA romantic crime thriller, is my first book - it's out in Australia through Allen & Unwin (September 2013), and in North America and the Philippines through Tundra Books (Penguin Random House). The sequel Every Word has just been released here in Oz (June 2014) and the finale, Every Move will be out in 2015.

I love it when people friend or comment, so feel free to do both!



We’re well into autumn here, and the fire is crackling over at our place almost every night. It’s getting cold, working outside in the study, but I don’t mind – I’m really picking up speed with this new book, and everything seems golden.
But it isn’t always like that. I was kind of inspired to write this post after reading another writer’s question recently, asking ‘what’s your hump point?’, and... Read more of this blog post »

Every Breath by Ellie Marney
"First of all, thanks for the recommendation Katie and Edna.

I didn't immediately 'felt' for this book when I started. Katie and Edna described this as young adult mystery -- though both also emphasized on the relationship rather than the mystery...." Read more of this review »

"I read Every Breath in the span of a weekend, and immediately rushed to buy the next two.

A great read by a talented author. I can't wait to see what else Ellie Marney comes up with!"

“You don't have to pretend with me, you know.' He reaches out and tucks a strand of my hair behind my ear. His expression is so open and honest I feel it like a sucker punch. 'I used to pretend, all the time, so I can spot it a mile away. If you're feeling shit, then just say so. I don't need to know the reason, it might be none of my business—'
'I'm feeling shit.”
Ellie Marney, Every Breath

“So what did Conroy say to you this arvo, after I left?'
He said, Rachel Watts is hot stuff, and I'd like to ask her out. Got any tips?'
'Mycroft, don't be juvenile.'
'I am a juvenile.'
'Then don't be grotesque. Are you going to tell me or not?'
Mycroft fiddles with the cigarette pack, loose in his long fingers.
'Nothing to tell,' he says. 'Conroy uses the same material in every speech. The we can't put up with this behaviour forever line, and the one more stunt like this line. I can't figure out why he keeps recycling.'
'Maybe he thinks constant repetition will make it sink in.'
'See, that's Einstein's definition of insanity right there - doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.”
Ellie Marney, Every Breath

“If you looked inside his brain at this moment you’d see all the little synapses, Catherine wheels and penny bangers and skyrockets, all firing off into space in some sparkling display of gathering momentum. I don’t want to look into his brain. Looking into his eyes is bad enough.”
Ellie Marney, Every Breath

“Kissing is something that makes up for a whole lot of the other crap you have to put up with in school, and as a teenager in general”
Maureen Johnson Name of the Star

“If you want me to fix your homework, you need to leave me alone.” Then he spotted her. “You’re back.”
“Yeah.” She glanced between him and Gabriel. “You do his homework?”
“Just the math. It’s a miracle he can count to ten.”
“I can count to one.” Gabriel gave him the finger.”

“Mai grins at Mycroft. ‘You know that’s slightly ridiculous, don’t you?’
He smiled. ‘Why?’
‘Because. . . because you’re teenagers.’ Mai’s expression says it should be obvious. ‘Mycroft, this isn’t like figuring out who spray-painted some guy’s car. This is murder.’
‘The principles are the same’ he insists.
‘But you’re both minors. And you have no access to police information, no experience, no forensics lab, no authority. . . ’
‘Mai, are you trying to bring me down or something?’
Gus, who usually only gets emotive about things like soccer, suddenly leans forward. ‘I think you should do it.’ He glances at me and Mycroft in turn. ‘This homeless guy, it’s not like his death is going to be a major priority, is it? The police won’t bend over backwards to bring his killer to justice or anything. He was a derelict with no family. So you two are the only ones who even care.”
