Ellie Marney is a teacher and author of Australian YA fiction. Every Breath (Allen & Unwin), the first novel in her YA romantic crime trilogy, the Every series, was listed in 2015 as one of the most-borrowed YA books in Australian libraries, and the two sequels, Every Word and Every Move, have won or been shortlisted for a bunch of other amazing awards. In 2017, her story Missing Persons was featured in Begin End Begin: A #LoveOzYA Anthology (HarperCollins), and she published her Every series spin-off, No Limits. Her next book, White Night, will be released in 2018.
Ellie advocates for the #LoveOzYA movement, runs #LoveOzYAbookclub online, and is an ambassador for the Stella Prize Schools Program in Australia. She lives in a little wooden house on ten acres 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.
