About the Author

James EllisJames Ellis is the author of several novels including The Mirrored World, The Enemies of Angels, The Lord of Souls, The Fairytale Thief, The Secret of the Woods, and Tinsel & Heart.

He is also the author of the graphic novel series Modern Days. Occasionally he will write a children’s picture book like The Cat & the Brand New Hat, or a theatre play like A Matter of Light and Darkness, or even a poem for his nephew about reaching the age of three, called “Now You‘re Three.”

But mostly he writes books, long books and short books, books that weren’t meant to exist and books that were supposed to be short stories but somehow got out of hand. If you asked him why he writes he would say, “Because I’m a writer.” One day he plans to write a book that doesn’t have snow in it or any form of tree.
