Hello, and welcome to With That She Wrote.
I’m Ellen J. Miller, the writer of the fiction and non-fiction pieces that are posted on this website.
In my childhood I was a voracious reader, of both fiction and non-fiction. Many mornings before school (after waking up early to watch Ceefax and Teletext on 4 in wonder, and lose myself in Open University programming) while eating breakfast I would read the backs of cereal packs, AA Drivers Manuals, car manuals, Dairy Crest books of homekeeping and more.
In my early teens my attention fell to my father’s bookcase, and I was introduced to the fantasy world of David and Leigh Eddings, inspiring my fascination with the easy and engaging reading style that kept me turning the pages. Another book I fell to love was Terry Nation’s Survivors, which then proceeded to give me visions of the apocalypse when SARS came to the attention of the news, as well as a further fascination with the post-apocalyptic.
