Ellen Cummins grew up in the heart of California chasing adventures in the sun. One of her obsessions has always been movies and books that take on an unexpected twist, leaving her with her heart in her throat. She wears many hats—a mother and wife, retail sales girl and manicurist of over 26 years, and unexpectedly a writer. Suddenly at the age of 40, an idea popped into her head and she began feverishly pecking away at the computer creating characters and worlds that she soon became obsessed with. From that point on she fought for them to have their own day in the sun. Her love of pretty things, be it a pink sparkly purse or a giant and mysterious Cyclamen bloom, inspires her to write colorful characters and haunting love stories that might make your soul just a little sweeter knowing them.
