Ellie spent the last ten years working in advertising in London and Dublin, at International Agencies Ogilvy and BBDO. She’s always worked in account management as “a suit”, which is just a posh way of saying she was the ping-pong ball between the “creatives” and the clients.
She’s been lucky enough to work with some of the industry’s greatest minds (and greatest drinkers), and had a lot of fun doing it. However, after deciding to write her first book, she left the dizzy lights of London, and moved back into suburban Dublin with her parents (not as much fun as it sounds). While in Dublin, she met a lovely Irish man, who works with horses. The only catch was he was based in Australia. But, never one to let a good thing slip through her fingers, she followed him back. She’s been in Australia for two years living in Geelong.
She is now back in advertising working for Target where she manages TV production for the marketing department as well as working on her second novel.
