Monna Ellithorpe was born in Greenfield, Ohio and grew up in Fort Myers, Florida. All of her life, writing has been a way to release the tensions of the day or work through trying times in life. With many interests, it has always been a dream to write books on different subjects to help others through their rough times. Through the years, she's found that she has become a "Journal Junkie" and creating journals for others and herself just seemed like the best thing to do. Her first book; "Easy Double Wedding Ring Quilt: Made Quick & Easy," published as a PDF file on her website and later self-published on Amazon in paperback and for the Kindle have been a dream come true. She has since written many other types of self-help books and now venturing into creating journals, planners and notebooks.
