Ellie Midwood is a USA Today bestselling and award-winning historical fiction author, whose works have been translated into 14 languages.

Thank you for your question. I've always been interested in WWII history, but the research for these particular series I started doing around February 2015 and started working on the first book in the end of May I believe. Right now the third one is being edited and I'm expecting to have it released at the beginning of December, so it took me about 6 months to finish three books:)(less)

Hi Mary! Aww, I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed all of my books! Thank you so, so much for reading them - I really appreciate it!
Yes, Book 3 in The Indigo Rebels series is definitely coming! I have another project (also a WWII novel which will be set on the Eastern Front) which will be released sometime in January, and right after that, I'll immediately start working on the last book in the French Resistance series.
Thank you so much again for your question and for your kind words! You made my day today!:)

Quotes by Ellie Midwood  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Six month of sitting home, six month of doing absolutely nothing but watching TV, going out, sleeping, getting drunk and sleeping again. Oh no, wait, I was busy with something, I was doing some renovations in my new apartment. Which legally became mine only a month ago. Yep, that's what all my life has been about, spontaneous decisions and living in the moment. Because right now technically I'm a 25-year-old illegal immigrant from Russia, four years in New York, no papers, no work authorization, no work itself. Only a crazy life filled with restaurants, shops, beauty salons, clubs and restaurants again. How is it all possible? Very simple. I used to be a stripper.”
Ellie Midwood, The New York Doll

“Is it too much of a sin, my desire to be loved?”
Ellie Midwood, The Indigo Rebels

“he was a beautiful, almost breathtaking masterpiece of a man, in which some higher power forgot to put a soul.”
Ellie Midwood, The Indigo Rebels

Topics Mentioning This Author

“They. His own superiors became “they” to him. The alien side, the hostile side. Somehow, in the middle of this war, he switched fronts without realizing it fully.”
Ellie Midwood, No Woman's Land

“he was a beautiful, almost breathtaking masterpiece of a man, in which some higher power forgot to put a soul.”
Ellie Midwood, The Indigo Rebels

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“Who would have thought that words could hold so much power, to stir so much hatred that it would eventually lead to genocide? I, for one, had always believed that we, the human race, were better than that.”
Ellie Midwood, No Woman's Land

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

Alison Brodie I recommend "After the Fire, a still small voice" by Evie Wyld. Also "Back Roads" by Tawni O'Dell (which I've just discovered is being made into a movie).
