About Ellie Blackwood

Hi there!

If you hadn't guessed already from the massive letters on top of this page, my name is Ellie Blackwood. I like writing books, reading books, and taking pretty photos of books. I also like to make video essays about Doctor Who and drink worryingly large quantities of tea.

This is mah face (feat. my favorite mug):

Some random facts about me:

  • I'm a British-American dual citizen (which is why my accent is Like That). 
  • My favorite word is “hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia,” because it means a fear of long words and I find that very funny. 
  • I can juggle.
  • I have grapheme-color synesthesia.
  • Some of my favorite books include This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone, For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten, Legendborn by Tracy Deonn, The Book Eaters by Sunyi Dean, and We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal.
  • Some of my favorite movies are Ex Machina, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Interstellar, and Inception.
  • Some of my favorite TV shows include Doctor Who (as evidenced by the fact that I won't shut up about it on TikTok), The Good Place, and The Boys.
  • I have cute dogs, who also like to read. This is Trish:

Review policy

I don't accept review requests directly from authors. Publishers are welcome to contact me about reviews, but I can't guarantee that I'll be able to say yes. As much as I'd love to read ALLLL the books, I'm just one person and my reading time is very limited ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
