About Ellen

I wrote and finished my first 30 minute stageplay at the age of 10, my first 91-page screenplay at 13, and my first 242 page novel at 15.

I started taking myself seriously when I wrote Captor, back in 2009. My first screenplay. I was so proud. And now; 6 years later, I'm an 18-year old screenwriter with over 9 screenplays, 5 television miniseries and 4 novels on my shelf.

I study screenwriting in Brussels, Belgium and take trips to Los Angeles to pitch my stories.

I realize that I'm young, and know that I have much yet to learn, but I have a backpack of experience and a head full of ambition.

Unique traits: Young and experienced.
