Ellison Blackburn is the author of several science fiction novels. As Ellis Blackburn, her current work-in-progress is a time-travel mystery set in Victorian-era Chicago.

Unlike other writers who knew what they wanted to be when they grew up, Ellis came into her creative own only a few years ago. And despite earning degrees in Biology and English Literature, for many years, she traveled a career path unrelated to either field of study. It was not until she authored her first Sci-Fi book did her education and work backgrounds mingle sensibly.

In addition to storytelling, Ellison enjoys painting, traveling, watching documentaries and movies, as well as reading novels and tales of mystery and suspense.

Jeff Wheeler, The Scourge of Muirwood
