Ellie Phillips is a children’s writer. Her first novel, Dad’s Geeks and Blue-Haired Freaks was published by Egmont in 2012 and its follow-up, Scissors, Sisters and Manic Panics followed in 2013.
Her childhood home was a flat above her parents’ bookstore and she spent a lot of time sitting under the shop counter reading the stock and wishing there were more novels like Forever by Judy Blume out there.
Ellie trained as a journalist and has been a runner up in the Bridport Prize for short story writing.
She lives in Sheffield with her husband, son and very fat cat, George.
