Ella Stradling is a pen name derived from two sources: Ella is my real middle name, given by my father in honour of his favourite singer, Ella Fitzgerald; Stradling is the surname of my 4th Great Grandmother who was the last of her line when she married into the family.
My first novel is a fantasy called "Revealing Rexa". Originally this title included both "Revealing Rexa" and its sequel "Awakening Sand" in one manuscript, and this version reached the semi-finals in the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, placing in the top 1% of the competition. Now expanded to become two separate full length novels, both volumes are available on kindle and paperback. A third book, "Rekindling Truth", is also available.
In a change of genre, I am working on an unrelated series of historical fiction romances. A novel length story, "The Curse of Mycenae", is available on kindle and in paperback. A short story, "Kiss of Kelloree", is now available on kindle.
You might also like to try my first esoteric work, "Crystal Runes", which is a rework of the ancient runic system of divination. This book takes the rune meanings back to their original source, while bringing the runes into modern language and linking them to specially selected crystals for enhanced readings. Available in paperback only.
