Ellee has been commissioned by Bonnier Books to write a series of three WW1 books under their Zaffre imprint, inspired by true stories with a royal theme. The first title will be published in June 2022.
Ellee is represented by Hannah Weatherill at Northbank Talent and Literary Agency.
Ellee’s book The Shop Girls, a memoir of life at an elegant ladies department store in Cambridge during the 1940s-60s, was a Sunday Times best read for 2014. Rich in social history, she was invited to speak at three literary festivals and numerous historical and WI groups about life behind the counter during a bygone era.
Ellee says, “I love researching and writing books with an historical context that readers can relate to – and leave them wanting more. I am thrilled to be signed up with Bonnier Books as one of their new saga writers, to keep these stories flowing for years to come.
“The Shop Girls was great fun to write and it was a tremendous bonus to talk to so many groups about real shop girls’ lives in Cambridge during the vintage years, tell them about this amazing elegant ladies store run by another larger than life Mr Selfridge character, that had all but faded from living memory.”
