ELLEN GREY CARTER

i'm a writer. other stuff too.

About

young adult fiction writer

Hi! My name is Ellen Grey.  There’s a lot of stuff I’d love to tell you about me.  Beware, I am quite random.

I am in love with photography. It helps me control the universe.

I have taken great pains to develop my own style in all aspects of life.  Like writing, photography, music.  Except not in real life.  I have no fashion sense whatsoever when it comes to dressing myself.  I wear t-shirts and jeans and the rattiest etnies slip-on shoes you have ever seen.

I change my hair a lot.

I am married, I have two adorable kids.

I will collect anything vintage, antique, historical…I think there is true beauty in the past.  I have the hoard to back that up.

It’s fun to make short little horror flicks.  Maybe I’ll show some to you someday.

I have written poetry, short stories, and am close to putting my first novel out there.  In the world.

I used to be in a band. I played drums.

I want a tattoo, but have never gotten one because I can’t think of a single thing I wouldn’t get sick of.

I am a new nerd.  Which means I have recently fallen in love with Dr. Who, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica….yeah…….no one told me that there was a huge amount of actual real life awesomeness there.  Apparently, nerds got it going on.

If you haven’t had enough, you may proceed.

Things I love:

I love coffee. And tea. But mostly coffee.

I love reading.  Duh, right?

I love history and dirty dusty pieces of it. I especially love Russian history.

I love prairies.

I love MetroMint water.

I love sushi.

I love experimenting with paleo recipes.

I love thunderstorms and tornado warnings.

I love shopping Ikea and Anthropologie catalogs.

I love swimming.

I love naked trees.

I love making crappy scary short films.

I love to run.

I love creamy, sunny light.

I love love love LOVE.

I am annoyingly in love with apple products.

I love to garden. I especially love my herbs. Chives, oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil…they smell and taste so gooooood. One year we grew cilantro, which we ate with every meal, and now I can’t stand it.

I am totally head over heals for God.

    I am nominating you for the Liebster Blog Award. If you are not keen on participating, that’s fine, because I know that not everyone is keen on these awards. However, I wanted to show my appreciation for your blog and share you with others.
