Monna Ellithorpe was born in Greenfield, Ohio and grew up in Fort Myers, Florida. All of her life, writing has been a way to release the tensions of the day or work through trying times in life. With many interests, it has always been a dream to write books on different subjects to help others through their rough times.
Her first book; "Easy Double Wedding Ring Quilt: Made Quick & Easy," published as a PDF file on her website and later self-published on Amazon in paperback and for the Kindle have been a dream come true.
The later published information/instruction books are guides that have been written to make readers aware of tasks that need to be done in life and not to assume that all of your own final wishes and those of a loved one are in order. Make sure they are!
Starting with the challenge of NaNoWriMo in November of 2014, this will be her first step into writing fiction and historical fiction.
Monna also has one book published under the pen name of Nelynn Russell. At this time, she has a total of 8 books available in paperback and electronic versions.
