A life-long addiction to reading science fiction and horror, meant writing was the logical outlet for Ellie Garratt’s passions. She is a reader, writer, blogger, Trekkie, and would happily die to be an extra in The Walking Dead. Her short stories have been published in anthologies and online. Passing Time is her first eBook collection and contains nine previously published stories. Her science fiction collection Taking Time will be published later in the year.

Hi Michael,

I think this is most gracious of you to bring further awareness of writers and their books.

All the very best to the lovely Ellie Garratt and I look forward to her science fiction collection being published later this year.

And in the spirit of this great community and I'm not self-promoting, Michael, however, I do hope you would be so kind as to check out my latest posting. Thank you.

In kindness, Gary
