Starting Off…

Engen Books is in a little bit of everything I do, or rather, storytelling is. I’m Ellen, and back in 2009 when I first handed a rough draft of my latest work to publisher and author Matthew LeDrew, I never thought my work would take off so fast.

Before I graduated from high school, I had three book launches under my belt. The last few years have seen the publication of my first short story, The Tourniquet Revival, in an assorted anthology that later spawned my solo collection Compendium. From there, Matthew and I co-wrote Infinity, and I moved into a larger role within Engen.

While doing this, I also acted as co-host for local web-series Sci-Fi on the Rock TV, a production aimed at providing information connected to the annual Newfoundland based science fiction convention Sci-Fi on the Rock. It was at Sci-Fi on the Rock that I first met Matthew at a panel about getting published.

Since that day, Matthew and I have teamed up on panels together and traveled across the country to different conventions. From a small start, Engen Books has grown to a multi-title, small-press machine, turning out work that I can say we are all truly proud of.

Essentially, through this blog I’ll be keeping people up to date on the latest goings on at Engen, and my latest day-to-day adventures. Until then, happy reading!
