Hi, I'm Ellen. I write documentation for a living, and I like writing fiction and fanfic, reading, sword-fighting, glima, dressmaking, knitting, singing, making and listening to a wide range of music, making chainmail, cooking, climbing, roleplaying, computer games, climbing, seeing friends and watching films. Plus a whole bunch of other stuff. Thanks to a bad year with ME, I'm on hiatus from a number of unpaid jobs: slushpile shoveller for Pseudopod, the world's largest horror podcast, and commissioning editor, slushpile reader, proofreader and occasional reviewer for Hub, Europe's biggest SF, F & horror pdf ezine. They aren't on hiatus, though - go check them out.
Big changes are happening at the moment, not least of which that I've left York with my husband after 16 and a half years. I'll be back to visit, though, and I should now have the time and the energy to do all the things I've stopped over the past year. Woohoo!
