Meet the Author Monday: Ellie White

Ellie White

It’s Meet the Author Monday! Each week we meet a new author and get to know a little about them, their writing process, publishing experience, and tips for other writers. Today we’re talking to Ellie White, author of Love in the Wings.

About Ellie White:

Ellie White was born and raised in Sunderland and is a proud Mackem!

She lives in Houghton-Le-Spring with her husband and 2 young children and is a lover of rom-coms, musicals and anything Disney.

About Love in the Wings:

Harriet Adams was a West End rising star until a lapse in judgement cost her her dream job, her boyfriend and so called friends.

She packs up her life and moves back to Sunderland where she gets a rare second chance at a career she thrives in. As she’s about open a shiny new musical in front of a home audience, she vows that this time, nothing is going to get in her way. With everything riding on this, she’ll play it safe, work hard and most importantly, stay away from theatre guys.

Cue Liam Wright, Assistant Stage Manager.

Liam is everything Harriet didn’t know she needed in her life, but he also has a secret. One that could advance his own career if he cashes it in. The only catch? It would ruin any chance of happiness with Harriet if she finds out.

Harriet and Liam share a love like no other, but will that be enough to save their budding relationship when the time comes?

  1. What is the first book that made you cry? 

Ps, I Love You by Celia Ahern

  1. What are common traps for aspiring writers? 

Editing while you’re writing. My biggest tip is to write the entire story and then go back and edit once you’re done. It’ll save you so much time!

  1. Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want? 

I write the stories I want to read. I don’t tend to follow trends or write to market as those stories don’t come naturally to me.

  1. How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have? 

Too many to count! I’ve got 8 active WIPs to release over the next few years and countless other ideas swirling around in my head.

  1. How do you handle writer’s block? 

Have a melt-down and once I’ve finished overreacting I normally read a book or step away and do something else creative.

  1. What comes first, the plot or characters? 

Probably both at the same time. My mind is a chaotic place.

  1. What time of the day do you usually write? 

Night time, once I’ve finished my full time job and the kids are in bed is when I get chance to sit down in front of the laptop.

  1. Are you on social media and can your readers interact with you? 

I love hearing from readers. Usually on Instagram and I’m so lucky to say that some of my readers have become really good friends.

  1. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite? 

I have two full length novels, Love in the Wings and Love and London. And I also have a novella called Playing For You which is part of the Twisted Tropes Anthology.

  1. Where can readers purchase your books? 

Love in the Wings and Love and London are both available on Amazon and in all good bookshops.

  1. Do you have any new series planned? 

Yes! My upcoming series is called A Wearside Story and the first book Playing For Her is coming on the 1st September.
