Ellie Marney is a teacher and author of YA fiction. Every Breath, the first novel of her YA crime Every series, was listed in 2015 as one of the most-borrowed YA books in Australian libraries, and her books have won or been shortlisted for a bunch of other amazing awards. Ellie advocates for the #LoveOzYA movement, runs #LoveOzYAbookclub online, and is an ambassador for the Stella Prize Schools Program. 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.
