After co-helming two of Engen’s most successful endeavors in 2016, Sci-Fi from the Rock and Exodus of Angels, Ellen Curtis returns to her short-fiction writing roots with her new story, ‘Winter’s Loch.’
Ellen Curtis is a writer and web TV personality born and raised in St. Johns, Newfoundland; whose aptitude for the written word began at a young age, when she began writing short stories, poetry, lyrics and novellas.
She was ‘discovered’ at a Sci-Fi on the Rock II writing panel in 2008, and her first collection of stories, Compendium, was published just over a year later in October 2009.
Since then she has risen to become one of Engen’s lead authors, working of high-profile projects such as the Infinity series of adventure novels, become the editor of the From the Rock anthology series, and continuing in her own endeavors.
In her spare time she enjoys reading, art, music and spending time near the ocean.
