Hi, I'm Ellie, a 23-year-old engineer who likes math, science, and problem-solving, but also reading a five-book series back-to-back in a weekend. And now, writing my own too! I've never thought of myself as a writer, but I've always had stories in my head just begging to be told. Maybe if I write them down, they'll let me have some peace. :)

I joined Wattpad back in 2018 when I wanted to start sharing my writing anonymously online. By the end of 2019, I'd finished my very first novel, won the Wattys, and become a Wattpad Star! In 2020, I started my grad degree while also working full time, so updates can't be as frequent as I'd like. For sporadic updates on how that's going, check my Instagram, where my handle is elle_lawrence

Unintended Consequences ~ what started as an entry for a short story contest (didn't win) but became a place to share ways to reduce single-use plastics, be more environmentally friendly, and recycle

|Upcoming, yet Unpublished Drafts|
So many. Too many. Why do I keep making more of them?!

Next chapter of Death of a Dream is out, and it's holiday-themed! Too bad it's Joe's turn to narrate.
