About the Author
Ellis writes the stories she likes to read--action, adventure, and heart. She falls in love with the characters, flawed but striving to do the right thing, and hates leaving them when the book is finished.
Her novels are suspense stories with varying degrees of romance. All contain adult language and situations. She writes two series of linked books: the McGuire women books feature members of a family with a psychic streak; and the Maleantes & More books, though standalone stories, are linked by the major characters, who work for Will Porter, head of Maleantes & More Security Consultants. Her short stories are Southern fiction, quite different from her novels.
Ellis and her husband live in the green and beautiful South Carolina Piedmont, where assorted creatures wander by for a meal. They are the devoted servants of two sweet rescue dogs who are often featured on Ellis's Facebook page. She's always been a sucker for fur and feathers. From early childhood she's told stories (not quite how her mother put it) and collected strays. Ellis started as a graphics artist, moved into editing, and then writing. She also taught fiction writing. You can reach her through facebook.com/EllisVidler.AuthorPage.
