Ellie Marney was born in Brisbane, and has lived in Indonesia,
Singapore and India. Now she writes, teaches, talks about kid's
literature at libraries and schools, and gardens when she can,
while living in a country idyll (actually a very messy wooden house
on ten acres with a dog and lots of chickens) near Castlemaine, in
north-central Victoria. Her partner and four sons still love her,
even though she often forgets things and lets the housework go.
Ellie's debut novel, Every Breath, was shortlisted for the Davitt Awards, the Ned Kelly Award and the Centre for Youth Literature's Gold Inky. Every Move is her third novel for young adults.
