Author: Monna Ellithorpe

My name is Monna Ellithorpe. I have been writing in journals, diaries and creating short stories since my teen years. Writing became a way to release the never-ending ideas, thoughts, and sentences that rambled around in my mind; waiting to find a place in a story. After the death of my beloved husband in 2008. It was then that I started to seriously pursue a career in writing. I live in Fort Myers, FL., and I continue to write short stories and articles and work on my first novel, along with helping others to publish their books and teaching different classes online to help make life easier for writers.
