Work History

First Lady

Blue Jean Writer - Monna Ellithorpe

From December 2013

My name is Monna Ellithorpe. I have been writing in journals, diaries and creating short stories since my teen years. I didn't have the "happily ever after" life I had dreamed of the first time in marriage, so writing became a way to release the never ending ideas, thoughts and sentences that rambled around in my mind; waiting to find a place in a story.

My first book published in 2003 was a different technique to make a Double Wedding Ring Quilt easier and faster. I still didn't realize that my purpose in life was to write until after the death of my beloved husband in 2008. It was then that I started to seriously pursue a career in writing.

I live in Fort Myers, FL., and I continue to write short stories and articles and work on my first novel, along with helping others to publish their books and teaching different classes online to help make life easier for writers.

I set up blogs for people who don't want to learn how and I can help you get your book published and learn how to get it in front of interested readers.
