About Ellyn Oaksmith

Anne of Green Gables was the first book to grab my heart and by the time I was in high school, I told people I wanted to be a writer. My first paid work was as a screenwriter in Los Angeles which is exactly as crazy as it seems in the movies. After hightailing it back to my native Seattle, I began writing comedic romances and never looked back. Jojo, my high-energy little party girl dog came to us by way of Los Angeles and Mexico. She keeps me laughing and gets me out of the house, and on the trails.  Mornings are for writing. Afternoons I work part-time at a nearby school with special needs children. Except for family time, I’d usually rather have my nose in a book. 

I love hearing from readers on Instagram, Facebook and my newsletter and talking about all things dogs, books, and baking.  

Thanks for stopping by.
